​Dec. 4, 2018 Update:

Due to the early onset of colder weather and the impacts of the labor dispute between the Michigan Transportation and Infrastructure Associated and the Operating Engineer's Local 324, the City of Ann Arbor has determined it is no longer possible to complete the Scio Church Improvements Project in a manner consistent with good construction practices and quality workmanship. To that end, the city has decided to “winterize" the project area, Scio Church Road from South Main Street to South Seventh Street, until spring 2019 when the weather will be conducive to performing the remaining construction activities.

As of Dec. 4, Scio Church is re-opened to traffic in both directions. ​

Why is this project being done?

The current condition of the pavement on Scio Church between 7th Street and Main Street is in poor condition and is in need of replacement. There are gaps in the sidewalk that prohibit the movement of pedestrians within the project limits.    


Public Input and Design: Fall 2016 thru June 2017

Construction Schedule: Early Spring, 2018 thru Summer 2018

Work To Be Done

  • Street Resurfacing
  • Road Dieting
  • Filling Sidewalk Gaps
  • Potential Bio-infiltration

Possible Impact to Residents and/or Businesses

Scio Church may potentially be closed to thru traffic during construction. Traffic detours will be posted. Access will be maintained at all times for homes fronting Scio Church and also for all side streets with access limited to Scio Church only.

General noise and dust generated by excavation of the site and the equipment that must work in the area.

Costs and Funding Source

  • The City will be receiving Federal Surface Transportation funds to apply to 80% of the construction costs.
  • City Street Millage will fund the items of work pertaining to the street resurfacing
