City to Begin the Restoration of South Saginaw Street

Mayor Paula Zelenko is pleased to announce that the City of Burton will begin the restoration of Saginaw Street between Hemphill Road and Bristol Road on Thursday, April 11, 2019.

The project will consist of just over one half mile of bituminous pavement rehabilitation, extending through both intersections, and will include: HMA (hot mix asphalt) cold milling; HMA base repair and joint repair as required; 31/2-inch HMA resurfacing; drainage improvements; miscellaneous concrete curb and gutter repair; concrete sidewalk and ramp repair and replacement as needed; traffic signal upgrades; new pavement markings; ADA (Americans with Disabilities Act) ramps upgrade; and final restoration.

Use of a part-width construction process, delineated by cones and signage, will enable 2-way traffic and access to properties to be maintained at all times. However, motorists are advised to expect traffic delays, and are asked to exercise caution.

The project is scheduled to be substantially complete in early July, with final restoration done by mid-September. It is not expected to impact the annual Back to the Bricks event. No work will be performed during holidays. All work is weather-dependent.
