The construction headache on West Avenue in Jackson is almost over. The city confirms the busy street will reopen tomorrow, September 2 after a lengthy construction project.

Construction on West Avenue has been underway since April.

During the first phase, West Avenue between North and Ganson Streets was blocked off.

The second phase started in July, closing West Avenue between Michigan and Wildwood avenues.

MDOT crews repaired the crumbling road, upgraded the storm sewers and water mains, and replaced sidewalks.
