Local traffic is restricted to one lane (using flaggers) within the northbound lane from the GVSU Private Drive north to Marlboro St.  At Marlboro St. traffic is shifted back to the southbound lane to cross the storm sewer mainline operation near Edinboro St.In addition to the weekly progress updates, more frequent maintenance of traffic updates will begin to be posted on the construction update webpage at  Our goal is to provide approximate locations of daily construction activities affecting local traffic as they change throughout each week.  We appreciate your patience and understanding that local traffic will not always be able to cross past the storm sewer and road building operations and may require following the posted detour around Wilson Ave.  While delays should be expected, access to every house within the project area and nested neighborhoods will be maintained at all times.
