Completion of 2017 Projects
Projects listed below were started in 2017 and will be completed during the 2018 construction season (note: information is subject to change and will be periodically updated as projects progress):
Okemos-Jolly Intersection (Meridian & Alaiedon Townships) - Intersection reconstruction and widening for right turn lanes on northbound, eastbound, and southbound approaches, including concrete pavement overlay, storm sewer, curb and gutter, sidewalk, and new traffic signal. Work has been substantially completed on this project. Minor clean-up and restoration remains to be completed in fall 2018 which may include brief outer lane closures around the given work. Click on project name in blue text for more information.
Jolly Road; Dobie Rd to Meridian Rd (Meridian & Alaiedon Townships) – 2.4 miles of asphalt recycling, widening for 4 foot wide paved shoulders, grading, and asphalt paving. Also included two large culvert replacements near Every Road, and minor grade changes to improve sight distance, Click on project name in blue text for more information and detour routes.
Work on this project has been completed through first layer of asphalt. Second layer of asphalt, shoulders and other restoration is expected to be completed in fall 2018, see NOTE below. Signs are posted to indicate the road remains closed to through traffic, however traffic may access all destinations within the closure and may pass through when work is not occurring, however will need to use the posted detour route when work is occurring to reach destinations beyond the point at which work is occurring at a given time.
NOTE: Work has stopped on the Jolly Road project, Dobie to Meridian Roads, due to the current statewide labor dispute between contractors affiliated with the Michigan Infrastructure & Transportation Association (MITA), which includes the contractors on the Jolly Road project, and construction equipment operators represented by the Operations Engineers Local 324 union. Future updates will be provided here when available.
Columbia Road crossing the Grand River (Aurelius Twp)
– Bridge replacement substantially complete. An actuated yellow flasher system will be installed to assist drivers with identifying approaching traffic. That work is expected to occur in October with shoulder and/or lane closures (traffic regulator control) only; the bridge will remain open to through traffic.
South Waverly Road at Columbia Road visibility concern with new bridge:
As concerns have been submitted regarding the new Columbia Road bridge truss and railing interrupting visibility of approaching east bound traffic from the south approach of Waverly Road at Columbia Road immediately east of the new bridge, the following information and links to related photos are provided:
When motorists stop in advance of the ‘STOP’ sign, the intersection visibility is more than adequate, and significantly improved from the conditions at the old bridge prior to tree clearing for construction of the new bridge (see before and after photos by clicking on the blue text of the words before and after).
To emphasize the appropriate stop location, a new ‘STOP HERE’ sign was added (see photo) to emphasize that motorists should stop in advance of the ‘STOP’ sign and the stop bar on the pavement in order to see approaching eastbound Waverly Road traffic through the truss and railing. From this vantage point, the visibility of vehicles approaching the bridge and on the bridge (viewed through the truss) can be clearly observed and motorists should readily be able to identify traffic gaps to safely enter Columbia Road (see video).
While the truss can obscure visibility from vehicles that stop beyond the stop bar, motorists can still pull up carefully on the new wider paved shoulder to the lane edge and see INSIDE the truss without impeding Columbia Rd traffic (see shoulder photo).
The attached photos and videos will help motorists who have had difficulty with visibility at the new bridge to comfortably and safely navigate the intersection.
A flashing warning system which detects traffic in both directions will be installed soon to assist drivers on both Columbia Road and northbound Waverly Road at Columbia Road in identifying conflicting traffic.
See list below of other future major road projects. Further information will be added for these and other future projects when further determined.
