[ARCHIVED] City of Saline US-12 (Michigan Ave) Reconstruction 2016-17

What Is Being Done?
Starting in April 2016, the Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT) will reconstruct US-12 (Michigan Avenue) in downtown Saline from N. Maple Road/Old Creek Drive to the bridge over the Saline River. Work includes widening US-12 to five lanes between Lewis Street and Harris Street to add a center turn lane, storm sewer and water main upgrades, sidewalk improvements, and traffic signal upgrades.

In addition, downtown amenities will be updated as part of a streetscape enhancement grant in partnership with the City of Saline. These upgrades include enhanced crosswalks at major intersections, the addition of mid-block islands, and enhanced lighting along the corridor.

How Will Traffic Be Affected?
One lane of westbound traffic will be open between Monroe Street and Maple Road, with eastbound traffic detoured using Henry Street.

One lane will be open in each direction between the bridge and Monroe Street. There also will be short-term intersection closures with a detour posted.

The roadway is expected to reopen to traffic by November 2016, with project completion by spring 2017.
