S. Park St. Closure

5/8/2017 TO 6/30/2017

TRAVERSE CITY- The City of Traverse City and Elmer’s Crane and Dozer will be reconstructing S. Park St. between E. Front St. and E. State St. The project will start Monday, May 8, 2017 and is expected to be substantially completed by June 30, 2017.

Work includes adding streetscape elements such as pedestrian scale lighting, wider sidewalks, street trees, and brick pavers. S. Park St. between E. Front St. and E. State St. will be closed to all traffic for the duration of the project. Detours will be provided utilizing Cass St. and Boardman Ave. The east-west alley south of E. Front St. between Cass St. and S. Park St. will be temporarily converted to two-way traffic for the duration of the project. All vehicles will be allowed to enter and exit the alley onto Cass St. Commercial vehicles and deliveries are encouraged to use side streets to make their deliveries.

Please use alternate routes avoiding this area to reduce congestion, delay and promote worker safety. Appropriate signage and barricades will be in place in and around the work area.

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 Alex Yockey at 922-4468 if you have any questions, comments or concerns about the work or the schedule.
