[ARCHIVED] Street and bridge construction update

S. West Ave construction

If you’ve driven around Jackson lately, you’ve likely noticed a lot of street closures. This is the result of an active construction season, which is seeing bridge replacements, water infrastructure upgrades, and improved street surfaces.

Two projects recently wrapped up construction. There is now a new street surface on Denton Road in the Cascades Park area and the E. Washington Avenue bridge has been fully replaced by the Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT).

MDOT is also in the process of replacing two railroad overpasses in Downtown Jackson that go over N. Mechanic and N. Jackson streets. Those projects are expected to be completed in Nov. Also underway is the replacement of the E. High Street bridge in the industrial park area on the southeast side of the City. This project, which is also being conducted by MDOT, will close E. High Street through Oct.

A sizable water infrastructure project has closed S. West Avenue between W. Michigan Avenue and Carlton Boulevard. The City of Jackson is replacing an undersized and outdated water main in this area and replacing 46 lead service lines. S. West Avenue is expected to reopen in late July.

Local drivers can also look forward to an improved street surface on Greenwood Avenue between Griswold and W. Morrell streets. Crews will resurface this 1 mile stretch of Greenwood, bringing a closure from June to late Sept. Planned resurfacing projects on Wildwood Avenue and lead service line replacements on E. Michigan Avenue will top off a busy summer construction season in Aug. The City also has plans to reconstruct traffic signals for better traffic flow at seven intersections across Jackson.
