approximately three weeks for utility work
M-59 (Huron Street)
Tuesday, Sept. 15, 2020
Beginning 9 p.m. Tuesday, eastbound M-59 will be closed from Saginaw Street to Perry Street for utility work for approximately three weeks. The closure is required for excavation work, concrete curing around drainage structures, and utility access and repairs. Westbound M-59 and local roads will remain open during the closure.
Eastbound M-59 traffic will be detoured via southbound Woodward Avenue, then northbound Woodward Avenue to eastbound M-59.
Maintaining and repairing catch basins will promote proper drainage of the roadway. Proper drainage promotes safety for drivers by clearing the roadway of excess standing water.
