Project limits

Geddes Road to US-23 . Earhart Road had previously been two separate projects: Geddes Road to Greenhills Drive; and Greenhills Drive to US-23. These have been combined into a single project for that entire length of Earhart Road to be constructed in 2023.

Timeline

  • Public Engagement: Fall 2022
  • Design: Fall 2022 - Winter 2023
  • Construction: Spring 2023 - Fall 2023 ​

Why is this project being done?

While the scope of this project is currently under development a primary focus will be to improve the poor pavement conditions and upgrade certain stormwater system components within the corridor. In addition, it will provide an opportunity to address objectives recognized in the city's Comprehensive Transportation Plan (Ann Arbor Moving Together Toward Vision Zero) together with others identified through new public engagement initiatives planned for the project. These initiatives will assist to guide the final scope determination and move the project forward into design.​

The Earhart Road Project will have numerous benefits to residents through enhancements to multiple transportation modes. Proposed improvements include the following:

  • Repave the entire length of Earhart Road with in the City Limits.
