JACKSON, Mich. — The City of Jackson Engineering Division is preparing for a large construction project that will impact a busy roadway on the City's southwest side.

Starting Monday. June 3 crew will being working on Fourth Street, focusing on replacing pavement and realigning intersections in several areas. The overall goal of this project is to replace aging pavement and update intersections at a major gateway into the City.

Work in these areas are scheduled to take place at the same time, and is expected to wrap up in August. Fourth Street from Audubon Boulevard to the intersection of Stonewall and Horton roads will be milled and repaved.

In addition, the roundabout at the West Avenue intersection will be redesigned to make the roundabout easier and safe to drive around.

The next part of this overall project will be realigning the intersection of Fourth Street, Stonewall Road and Horton Road. This three-way intersection is located at the city limits with Summit Township and is a major access point to the City of Jackson. It will be designed into a T-intersection to allow for better traffic flow. The intersection will also receive new pavement, curbs, traffic signals and a pedestrian crossing to connect an existing trail to Ella Sharp Park.

Construction crews will begin setting up street closures and detour signs the week of Monday, June 3.

During construction, Fourth Street will be closed to through traffic, but will remain open to local traffic so that residents and business patrons can access driveways located in the work-zone.

The access point to the middle school located at Parkside parking lot will be the driveway from West Avenue.

The Engineering Division will be sending out construction updates to residents and businesses throughout the project and residents are advised to follow detours and prepare for street closures when driving through this part of Jackson.
