East Alley between E Huron St and E Lawrence St will be closed 7/15-7/21 for DTE work. There will be a pause in the work where the alley will be fully open. Work will continue 8/12-8/25. During this August window, sporadic closures are expected though the alley will be open most of the time. If any person should have questions about this closure, they should contact Chris Baldwin from Motor City Electric at 313-268-7152.



Construction Begins May 20th - Auburn Ave. from S. Tasmania to S. Francis St.

roadconstructionConsumer’s is scheduling a project on Auburn Ave from S Tasmania St to S Francis St to repair a gas line in poor condition. The northernmost lane on Auburn will be closed along this section on an as needed basis. This would be the right lane for westbound traffic.

The work is expected to begin approximately 5/20 but we are still awaiting a final schedule which we are anticipating next week. We will give you updates as we get them.
