Road work to affect traffic near campus this spring and summer

A series of road construction projects affecting traffic on or near the Ann Arbor campuses are scheduled to begin May 6 and run through the summer and possibly into the fall.

The following updates are provided by the city of Ann Arbor.

Fuller Street

Expected to begin on May 6 and last through Aug. 21, Fuller Street between Glen Avenue and Glen Court near the Medical Campus will be closed for utility work. Glen Court will remain accessible at all times and pedestrian access along the south Fuller Street sidewalk will be continuously maintained.

The detour for westbound traffic on Fuller west of Glen Court will be south on Glen Avenue, west on East Huron Street and north on Main Street to Depot Street. The detour for eastbound traffic on Fuller east of Glen Court will be south on Main Street, east on East Huron Street and north on Glen Avenue to Fuller Street.

Hoover Avenue, Greene Street and Hill Street lane closures

Anticipated to begin May 6 and potentially lasting into late October, intersection and lane closures will be in effect on Hoover Avenue, Greene Street and Hill Street near the Ross Athletic Campus for a road improvement and utility upgrade project.

The work will be executed in phases. Phase 1 will primarily affect Hoover between South Main Street and South State Street. For a majority of the time, westbound Hoover will be closed and eastbound Hoover will remain open.

Phase 2 will primarily affect Greene between Hill and Keech Avenue, and Keech between Greene and South Main.

The third phase will primarily involve closures on Hill between Adams Street and South Fifth Avenue. Additional information will be shared in upcoming traffic updates as the exact timing, areas of construction and detours are determined.

South State Street lane closures

Expected to start in early June and last through late August, rolling lane closures will occur on South State Street between Oakbrook Drive and Stimson Street for road resurfacing. Two-way traffic, access to properties and pedestrian and cycling traffic will be maintained.

Adams Street is not an Avenue. The signage was misprinted when it was replaced at least 15 years ago. The signage was corrected within the last 5 years, but the Avenue impression lingers. Please note this.
