Fort Street Construction Nearing Trenton

Traffic will be moved onto the recently rebuilt left lanes in both directions from Goddard to Pennsylvania.

The second phase of the $40 million Fort Street reconstruction project is expected to get under way this week, and it's getting ever closer to Trenton.

Traffic will be shifted onto the recently rebuilt left lanes in both directions from Goddard to Pennsylvania.

The change will allow workers to begin utility work under the two right lanes in both directions in advance of repaving, which is expected to begin in early fall.

When the stretch from Goddard to Pennsylvania is completed in late fall, the project will then move in similar stages from Pennsylvania to Sibley.

All work is set to be finished in the fall of 2013.

When completed, the Michigan Department of Transportation project will have reconstructed four miles of Fort between Sibley and Goddard. The work spans five cities–Lincoln Park, Riverview, Southgate, Trenton and Wyandotte.

Every day that passes ... the beast gets closer. How bad do you think traffic will get in Trenton?

How bad will it get? It can't be much worse than it is now with the trains on Fort St., Van Horn east of Fort, Van Horn West of Allen, Allen Road, King Rd., Sibley Rd., and wherever they cross. It's hard to go anywhere without having to plan ahead to avoid them. And that is getting more and more impossible to do. Add more road construction, and we may as well all stay home! Too bad Woodhaven decided against funding for an overpass. They collect taxes from businesses in their city, but the traffic and trains make me want to avoid them. I wonder how many others feel the same way.

i think to decide to do both north and south bound lanes of fort st. at the same time was bad judgement. ran lots of small business out.they are small in the first place and most of them just cant survive in a situation like this. where most people try and avoid construction areas. and and take business elsewhere same thing with south field rd. ran lots of business out .might make better sense to try and do one side at a time. would move along at a much faster pace.
