Notice of Road ClosureNOTICE OF ROAD CLOSURE

WHERE: Cross Street between River Street and Lincoln Street.



Full Closure – To start on Wednesday, September 5, 2018 and end Wednesday, September 12, 2018 (one week duration).

Partial Closure – To start on Thursday, September 13, 2018 and end on Wednesday, December 12, 2018 (90 day duration).

Full Closure (anticipated) – To start on Thursday, December 13, 2018 and end on Thursday, December 20, 2018 (one week duration).

Additional Full Closures – The possibility exists for additional full closures (short duration) beyond what is noted above. These additional closures might become necessary for underground utility work or during extreme weather events (high winds). Please pay attention to the Portable Changeable Message Signs that will be located on Cross Street (one near Grove Street and one near Riverside Park). These signs will indicate the type of closure to be encountered.

WHY: To place temporary bracing on the existing south wall of the Thompson Block building. To continue with this project’s construction this wall needs temporary support. Temporary bracing will need to be placed which will encroach upon the northern-most westbound lane of Cross Street. Following the first full closure, Cross Street will be reopened but this northern-most lane at the River Street intersection will become a restricted area which will not be available for use by vehicular nor pedestrian traffic. Vehicles traveling westbound on Cross Street will be able to continue through the River Street intersection or turn left onto southbound River Street. Right turns onto northbound River Street will be permitted but right turns during a red light will be prohibited. The same section of road will need a full closure once again, once the need for bracing is complete, to remove all of the bracing components.

QUESTIONS: Questions or comments may be directed to Joe Meyers, City of Ypsilanti DDA Director, at or during business hours at (231) 350-2547. Paul Bowen, the Construction
Manager’s Site Leader for this project, may also be reached at (517) 819-1897.
