ANN ARBOR, me. – It’s construction season in Ann Arbor.
In March, the city of Ann Arbor released its list of planned road and sidewalk projects for 2021. Across the city, nearly nine miles of roads will be renewed or restored, 6.2 miles of road will be preventive maintenance, and there will be 5,700 feet of new sidewalk construction, said the city.
Construction work on road and sidewalk projects affects traffic in Tree Town for various periods of time, from a day to a few months.
Surface renewal / restoration
Refurbishment and restoration projects affect both main and secondary roads. These projects include restoration work, new markings, replacement of asphalt and concrete pavement, repair of gutters and curbs, work on drainage or utility structures, and ADA compliance of sidewalk ramps.
