Plan ahead: 2023 construction season around Ann Arbor

April 26, 2023  //  FOUND IN: Updates & Resources

The 2023 construction season is underway in Ann Arbor. This means quite a few road and/or lane closures are and will be in place to make room for road resurfacing and reconstruction as well utility projects. 

The next six months may prove frustrating as commutes are altered, delays occur and schedules change due to weather or other unforeseen circumstances. 

However, the City of Ann Arbor has a number of resources available so you can stay aware of what is happening on and what is planned for city streets.
