From the DEGC:
In order to complete the underground utility connections for the new water main and storm piping systems presently installed in Atwater, our Project Team will need to close the intersection of Atwater and Rivard on July 26 and reopen on Aug 6. The underground work in the intersection is substantial and due to safety reasons no traffic will be allowed to come into the intersection or use the temporary road access to the Rivard Parking.
We have encountered a number of challenges with the existing underground conditions, if work does not take place on July 26 as planned, we will commence on Aug 2 thru Aug 13 (plan B). We are and will continue to work diligently. We are apologize for the inconvenience this will cause our neighbors but the work is necessary to upgrade and improve the City of Detroit’s utilities in the right of way and thus provide better services to property owners and businesses in the area.
We are planning a mid-September paving and reopening of Atwater.
