Bridge construction is expected to affect traffic in Ann Arbor by July

ANN ARBOR, me. – Starting Tuesday 9:00 a.m., drivers will drive longer in downtown Ann Arbor as traffic over Broadway Bridge is reduced to one lane in both directions.

Access to the Amtrak long-term parking lot on the east side of the railroad tracks will be retained. Those who drive to the station can continue to cross the bridge from the long-term car park while the work is in progress, according to a statement from the city.

Signage directs other pedestrian traffic along Broadway to the opposite side of the street so repairs can continue.

The construction work is expected to last until July 20th.

Mending portions of the barrier wall and sidewalks, installing an epoxy based sealer on the bridge deck, and adding a non-slip coating to the cover joint cover plates.
