Alley North of Eighth St Closure

9/04/2018 TO 10/31/2018

TRAVERSE CITY- The City of Traverse City and Elmer’s Crane and Dozer, Inc. will be reconstructing the alley north of Eighth St between Boardman Ave and Railroad Ave. The project will start Tuesday, September 4, 2018 and is expected to be substantially completed by October 31, 2018.

Work includes removing the existing pavement and installing new pavement, speed humps, curbs and gutters, and storm sewer main systems including drywells. The alley north of Eighth St between Boardman Ave and Railroad Ave will be closed to through traffic for the duration of the project. 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 email or call Jessica Carpenter,  (231) 922-6894, if you have any questions, comments, or concerns about the work or the schedule.
