ESTIMATED COMPLETION DATE:
The Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT) will begin $1.3 million in upgrades to several local streets surrounding elementary schools in the city of Flint. Work includes hot-mix asphalt paving of a nonmotorized path, sidewalk and ramp improvements, and lighting and sign upgrades surrounding Brownell and Holmes STEM Academy, Doyle Ryder Elementary, Eagles Nest Academy, Eisenhower Elementary, Freeman Elementary, Neithercut Elementary, and Pierce Elementary. This work is part of the Safe Routes to School (SRTS) program, improving safety and encouraging physical activity for students walking and biking to school. SRTS is funded by the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA).
This work will require intermittent single-lane closures on Saginaw Street, Dukette Boulevard, Ogema Avenue, Crestbrook Lane, Vernon Drive, Pershing Street, Becker Street, Cumings Avenue, Canterbury Lane, Pierson Road, Cloverlawn Drive, Basil Lane, West Home Avenue, Oxley Drive, and Bellcreek Drive. All work is weather dependent.
This work will improve pedestrian safety for students walking and biking to surrounding elementary schools.
This road construction project is an essential function. Transportation workers in the field follow Centers for Disease Control guidelines to limit their risk of getting sick.
