ANN ARBOR, MI — Downtown Ann Arbor’s First Street has been closed to traffic for a construction project.
The stretch between Miller Avenue and Huron Street closed Monday, Sept. 28, for the Downtown Development Authority’s First and Ashley Improvements Project, which involves converting and resurfacing the lanes for traffic in both directions between Kingsley and Madison streets, along with adding protected bike lanes to First Street from Kingsley to William streets.
Work is expected to be completed by Nov. 21, with the road reopened to traffic.
Southbound traffic is being detoured through Miller Avenue, to Fourth Avenue, to Huron Street and back to First Street. Pedestrian traffic is being maintained on one side of the street.
