The Carpenter Road Improvements project is scheduled to begin Monday, June 16, 2014. The project limits are between Packard Road and Washtenaw Avenue (M-17). The scope of the improvements consists of reconstructing the existing pavement, filling sidewalk gaps, construction of a midblock pedestrian crossing, and bike lanes on both sides of the roadway. This work will also be coordinated with a DTE Community Lighting project being constructed on behalf of Pittsfield Township. The project is scheduled to be re-opened to traffic in November of 2014.
Update: The Contractor for the Carpenter Road Improvements project is scheduled to begin paving the left turn lane and outside northbound lane (middle of the roadway) on Wednesday, October 1, 2014. The paving will begin on the north end of the project near the Washtenaw Ave intersection and work south to the Packard Road intersection. Paving operations will limit driveway access to the east side of the roadway while the concrete pavement is being placed. Paving is expected to continue for the left turn lane and outside northbound lane (middle of the roadway) until the end of the week, weather dependent. After which, the Contractor will begin the paving of the concrete curb & gutter, driveways, and sidewalk.
The project is currently in Stage 2 as the Contractor continues to reconstruct the east side of the road. Lane closures remain the same for the project and the posted alternate route for traffic to use is Packard Road, Golfside Road, and Washtenaw Avenue.
Please reduce speeds and drive cautiously through the work zone in order to maintain the safety of the road crews and the traveling public.
Please contact Matt MacDonell, WCRC Assistant Director of Engineering, at 734.327.6688 or firstname.lastname@example.org if you have questions or concerns on this project.
