TRAFFIC DETAILS:
Beginning Saturday, eastbound and westbound Burdick Street will be closed at M-24 intersection. No through-traffic will be allowed at M-24 and Burdick Street. All traffic will be detoured.

DETOUR:
Eastbound Burdick Street traffic will use southbound Pontiac Street, eastbound Drahner Road, northbound Oxford Lake Drive, and northbound Glaspie Street back to eastbound Burdick Street.

Westbound Burdick Street traffic will use southbound Glaspie Street, westbound Broadway Street, southbound M-24, westbound Drahner Road, and northbound Pontiac Street back to westbound Burdick Street.

SAFETY BENEFIT:
Extending the center left-turn lanes, improving the pavement surface, adjusting lane widths, and consolidating driveways will increase motorist safety by reducing the number of crashes in this area.
