Harvey Street Reconstruction Project

construction update

Harvey St., Ann Arbor Trail and Penniman are back open for travel to our residents, businesses, and visitors. That’s right; Harvey Street is back open for traffic!

In less than three short months, new utilities were installed (including new water main that had to go under the Tonquish Creek), new wider, ADA sidewalks were put in, additional lighting was connected, a new mid-block crossing installed connecting the Tonquish Creek Nature Trail to downtown, and the foundations for the new mast arm signals and pedestrian crossing signals were prepped for Spring installation.

There is still some on-going restoration work that is taking place over the next few weeks. Pedestrians and motorists will still see crews finishing up with some brick work, as well as trees, topsoil, sod and other landscape work. There is one small asphalt patch left to complete on Penniman, which will require a couple hour detour in the near future. We will communicate that once the schedule is set.

Please be cautious in the Harvey St. area while crews are working to put the finishing touches on a successful project. We appreciate everyone’s care and caution and ask for that to continue. Thank you for your support and enthusiasm during the past few months. We hope we delivered a timely, responsible project that will last for years to come.
