BURTON (WJRT) (6/5/2018) - A busy stretch of Center Road in Burton will be repaved over about two months beginning on Monday.
Crews will be repairing the five-lane roadway between Lapeer Road and Lippincott Boulevard.
The project involves repaving the entire width of the roadway and repairing curbs and gutters along both sides, along with some drainage improvements.
In addition, crews will make the stretch more pedestrian friendly with sidewalk repairs, new ADA-compliant sidewalk ramps and upgraded pedestrian crosswalk signals.
Traffic will be maintained in both directions throughout the project and all local businesses along the roadway will be accessible at all times. Cones and signs will direct motorists through the construction.
Traffic backups are likely during the project, which is slated to be complete by early September.
