Plan ahead and expect delays: East Ann Street road closure

May 5, 2021  //  FOUND IN: Updates & Resources

Please be advised that the next phase in the construction work related to the new hospital is expected to begin tomorrow, May 6.

The work will cause East Ann Street, between Observatory Street and Zina Pitcher Place, to be closed for utility work.

Plan ahead and expect delays and alert patients if they will be traveling in the area. Here’s what you need to know:

  • Eastbound East Ann traffic will be detoured south on Glen, east on East Huron Street, south on Washtenaw, east on Geddes and north on Observatory back to East Ann.
  • Westbound East Ann traffic will be detoured south on Observatory, west on Geddes, north on Washtenaw and north on Zina Pitcher Place back to East Ann.

Subsequent project-related road closures in June/July, and their associated detours within the same vicinity, will be posted in the field.
