600 Block E. Eighth St. Construction 

Eighth Street will be closed

Beginning on October 18th 2016

TRAVERSE CITY- Motorists and pedestrians should be aware that Elmers Crane and Dozer will be making utility connections and therefore closing the street and North Sidewalk.

There will be a signed detour route in place while the work is taking place.  Property owners will be able to access their property at all times and access to businesses will remain in place.  It is anticipated that this project will be completed by the end of the day on October 18th weather permitting.   

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 John McWethy at 922-4467 if you have any questions, comments or concerns about the work or the schedule.
