*Work delayed until Stone School Road construction is ​completed. Ellsworth: Start TBA - Finish TBA.  Ellsworth Road between Stone School Road and State Street will be closed to through traffic so that th​e Ann Arbor Railroad can perform railroad crossing maintenance. Traffic will be detoured on Stone School Road to Eisenhower Parkway to State Street. Local traffic will be able to access properties from Stone School Road to the railroad and from State Street to the railroad.

The start of work will be dependent upon the completion of nearby construction projects. Work schedules of both projects may change due to weather conditions.
