Here is the latest information about the project (all dates subject to change due to weather, MDOT, contractor schedules, etc.):

  • Construction is scheduled to begin the week of June 26, 2023, and will be completed by mid-November.
  • Merlo Construction is the primary contractor you will see working on this project.
  • On-street parking will temporarily not be available during the project. Public parking will be available in the public parking lots at Wellesley and Fairwood,  and on side streets where allowed.
  • One or two lanes will be closed on Woodward and Main Street between Sylvan and I-696 during the length of the project.
  • Unfortunately, 11 honeylocust trees will be removed, but most of the existing trees will be preserved and 24 new trees will be planted, resulting in a net increase of 13 trees.

We will have more detailed updates about the project as it progresses.
