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.
