Announcement: Careful at TART Trail crossing at Grant St.




Below is the PSA regarding the next two days of construction work along Woodmere Ave. Pretty clear concerning automobile detour (northbound), but be alert for obstacles and extra traffic if you’re approaching the area via foot or on bike. The crossing of the TART Trail at Grant St. is sure to be a little more difficult with the increased traffic. As well, the PSA is unclear about the trail crossing at Woodmere Ave. or public transit alternative to the stop in front of the library. A few weeks ago a similar project was a block away from the Woodmere-TART crossing.

If you experience the area on foot, bike or bus today, let us know how it went. 


(Amazing work from the MyWHaT graphics team…ahem)

Via the Planning Department:

Woodmere Ave partial closure June 12-13

TRAVERSE CITY- Residents and businesses should be aware that the City of Traverse City will be repairing Woodmere Avenue, between Hannah and Eighth Streets, due to sewer line maintenance this past winter, beginning on Wednesday, June 12, 2013 and ending on Thursday June 13, 2013. Work is expected to take place from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. both days. This work was previously scheduled on May 20-21, but was postponed due to rain.

For the safety of the public and protection of the construction workers, the northbound lane of Woodmere between Hannah and Eighth Streets will be closed during business hours both days. Traffic will be diverted around the block at Grant Street.

These restrictions are intended to expedite the construction work and minimize the time needed to complete the work. Appropriate signing and barricades will be in place. Expect delays and congestion in and around the work area. Alternate routes are advised.

Unfortunately, this construction will generate noise and cause inconvenience. We would like to thank you in advance for your patience and cooperation. Please contact Justin Roy, Water/Wastewater Maintenance Superintendent, at (231) 922-4923 if you have any questions or concerns regarding the work.

    Grant indeed had more traffic than usual due to the detour of northbound Woodmere Ave traffic. Crossing Woodmere Ave at the TART trail was no problem. Most of the work appears to be being done just North of Hannah Ave, so be aware that (in addition to construction vehicles) there may be traffic in the northbound lane from vehicles exiting businesses, etc.

    Thanks for the eyes on the street and trail, Jeff.

    FYI, The CIty sent out word today that the construction will continue through Friday.
