                     West Front St. Closure


West Front Street will be closed to all traffic

August 7th Until October 20th 2017

TRAVERSE CITY- Motorists and pedestrians should be aware that Elmer’s Crane and Dozer will be closing West Front Street from the Elmwood Avenue to Division Street for the reconstruction of the street including underground utilities. The duration of this closure will be from August 7th, 2017 to October 20th 2017.

W. Front St. will be closed except for local traffic between Cedar Run Rd. and Elmwood Avenue. It will be closed to all traffic between Elmwood Avenue and Division Street. Access to businesses and homes in the closed area will be maintained from the side streets and alleys. Crossings at Elmwood Avenue, Spruce Street and Cedar Street will be maintained as much as possible. Truck traffic serving businesses in the closed area will be allowed to use other local streets for deliveries to the area. A detour will be provided to bypass this section of W. Front St. Please do not use Medical Campus Drive for your route as it greatly impacts the mobility of emergency services going to Munson Hospital. Sidewalks will be closed but every effort will be made to have them accessible during the project. These restrictions are for the safety of the workers and to expedite the construction to reduce the time needed to complete the work.

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

Please review the Detour Map.
