WORK ON NEW NORTHWOOD UNIVERSITY ENTRANCE DRIVE STARTING MONDAY

 

October 12, 2012 Work on the new Northwood entrance drive is scheduled to begin on Monday, October 15. During the project, traffic on Main Street and Cook Road will be reduced to one lane to accommodate construction of storm sewers for the new street intersection.

 

Construction at the intersection is expected to be completed by the end of the business day on Tuesday, October 16. 

 

Motorists are encouraged to find alternate routes around the area to avoid congestion and delays.

 

Also beginning Monday, October 15, those using the Pere Marquette Rail-Trail are asked to watch for equipment crossing the trail during the street construction project.  The rail-trail will remain open to pedestrian traffic during the project with temporary gravel walkways available to route pedestrians around the work area.  Bicyclists and those on roller blades will need to use extreme caution when traversing the temporary walkways. 

 

It is anticipated that street work will be completed by late November.
