DEARBORN — The Michigan Department of Transportation announced that lanes on Ford Road between Telegraph Road and Inkster Road will close for construction beginning April 6.
Two lanes will be open in both directions during morning and afternoon rush hours. While during off-peak times, nights and weekends, only one lane will be open in each direction.
The $2.7 million project is set to improve the 1.8 miles of Ford Road in Dearborn and Dearborn Heights.
Work on the road is expected to continue until late June.
“Traffic safety will be improved for drivers and pedestrians with a smoother riding surface, and improved drainage, plus the addition of ADA sidewalks and push buttons at intersections,” MDOT said in a press release.
Some of the highlights of the project include concrete patch work, curb and gutter repair, upgrading sidewalk ramps to meet American with Disabilities Act (ADA) standards, improved pedestrian signals, drainage work and pavement markings.
