Hoover/Greene/Hill Project Update Aug 12th

Aug 17, 2019 | Construction

The following update was emailed on Aug 12, 2019 by Chris Wall, Project Manager for the City of Ann Arbor. For any questions or concerns with this project (or to be added to his email list of construction updates), he can be contacted at 734-794-6410 ext 43661 or by email at cwall@a2gov.org

The contractor has completed much of the utility work on Hoover Avenue and on Greene Street, south of Hoover. As we near the start of school, the contractor is focused on finishing road and sidewalk work on Hoover Avenue and Greene Street, south of Hoover.

The following work by the contractor is planned for this week:

  • Road and sidewalk work at the intersection of Hoover Avenue & Greene Street (sidewalk on all corners of intersection are closed and signed for detours)
  • Road and sidewalk work on Hoover Avenue between Greene and Division.
  • Road and sidewalk work in the State Street & Hoover Avenue intersection.
  • Road and sidewalk work on Greene Street between Kipke and Hoover.
  • Utility investigation in Greene Street between Hill and Davis.

There are no anticipated water main shutdowns this week. 

Pedestrian detours have been installed to route traffic around the sidewalk closures at the Hoover Avenue & Greene Street intersection. The pedestrian detour route consists of Greene (south of Hoover) to Keech, Keech to Main, Main to Hill, Hill to Division, and Division to Hoover. By closing this intersection and adjacent sidewalks, the duration can be reduced for sidewalk, curb and gutter, and road construction. The goal is to have most of the sidewalks at this intersection open next week. 

Greene Street, north of Kipke to south of Hoover, continues to be closed for road work. Traffic is being detoured via Main Street to Hill Street route. 

The State Street & Hoover intersection closure was re-installed to continue road and sidewalk work in the intersection. The southbound State Street detour will be routed south on Packard, west on East Stadium Blvd, south on Industrial Pkwy, west on Stimson and back to State Street. The northbound detour will route east on Stimson, north on Industrial Pkwy, east on Stadium Blvd, north on Packard, and back to State Street. 

On-street parking is still restricted on portions of E. Davis, Brown, Greene, Division, Mary, and Sybil to facilitate construction and traffic circulation. No Parking signs are posted in those affected road sections. 

Mail should continue to be delivered throughout the duration of the project. As well, trash pickup will continue as scheduled. Please let us know if you experience disruptions on either.
