South Michigan Avenue is due to be resurfaced in the City of Howell.

The Michigan Department of Transportation recently awarded the South Michigan Avenue resurfacing contract to C&D Hughes, Inc. The city notes the work is funded by and administered by MDOT. This project will consist of resurfacing South Michigan Avenue, between Mason and Grand River. Intermittent side street closures will be required. Also, as part of the construction, one lane in each direction on South Michigan Avenue, will be closed for three days each. Detour routes will be posted during times of lane closures. The city says the project also includes upgrading ADA sidewalk ramps at intersections along South Michigan Avenue between Mason and Grand River.

MDOT has communicated that construction will begin within the next couple of weeks. It is anticipated that once the project begins, it will take three weeks to complete. The schedule is weather dependent. (JM)
