Project Limits: Ecorse Road, from the proposed intersection with the extension of Vining Road to the intersection with Merriman Road. Additionally, Ecorse Road at Wayne Road, at Merriman Road, and at Middlebelt Road.
Project Description: This project will include the reconstruction of Ecorse Road as well as intersection improvements on Ecorse Road at Wayne Road, at Merriman Road, and at Middlebelt Road.
Traffic Impact/Detour: Traffic may be restricted at times. When traffic restrictions are in effect notices will be provided to the public. The project will be constructed so that it will maintain access to the surrounding businesses for the duration of the project. Currently, Ecorse Road between Sargent Street and Merriman Road is only open to eastbound traffic. Weather dependent, two-way traffic is expected to be restored on Monday, July 2, 2018 for both Ecorse Road and Vining Road.
Schedule: This project began in November 2017 and is expected to be completed in August 2018. Assuming that no delays are to occur, it is expected that Ecorse Road and Vining Road will open to traffic by July 2nd.
Underground and overhead electrical installation, as well as remaining storm water infrastructure was recently completed. Westbound Ecorse Road concrete has been poured along with various sidewalk locations, curbs, and approaches. Concrete will continue to be poured on Ecorse and Vining Roads this week with the additional expectation of removing old traffic signal equipment and energizing all of the new signals.
