Manhole Structure Repair

October 3 – October 14, 2016

TRAVERSE CITY- Motorists and pedestrians should be aware that the City of Traverse City Street Department will be closing portions of streets and rerouting traffic around construction sites starting Monday, October 3, to repair four manhole structures and raise the covers to road surface level.  This work is planned to be completed by October 14, 2016.

The work zones include:

South Cass Street between Fourteenth Street and Sixteenth Street

Carver Street at Barlow Street intersection

State Street east of Union Street at alley entrance on north side of State Street

The work will require streets to be closed and/or traffic diverted at periods throughout this planned construction time.  Please use alternate routes avoiding this area to reduce congestion, delay and inconvenience for your travels. Appropriate signage and barricades will be in place in and around the work areas.

This construction will generate dust, noise and cause inconvenience. We would like to thank you in advance for your patience and cooperation. Please feel free to call Robert Becker at 922-4901 ext. 119 if you have any questions, comments or concerns about the work or the schedule.
