Crahen Avenue

M-21/Fulton Street to 700 feet north

August 28 - November 22, 2017

This project will consist of relocating Crahen Avenue, beginning at the existing bridge over the railroad (approximately 700 feet north of M-21/Fulton Street) and intersecting with M-21/Fulton Street, to align Crahen Avenue with the existing intersection of M-21/Fulton Street and Forest Hill Avenue (approximately 620 feet east of the current intersection of Crahen Avenue and M-21/Fulton Street). 

Phase of Construction:

October 26, 2017 - Traffic has now shifted to the newly realigned Crahen Avenue off Fulton Ave./M-21.
Work now moves to phase three of the project, which includes finishing westerly curb, gravel and paving work at the northwest end of Crahen (south end of railroad bridge).
There will be periodic closures of the north, westbound lane of M-21 west of the new Crahen intersection. Lane closures will be restricted between 9AM and 3PM to complete curb work along the north side of M-21 through the old Crahen Avenue intersection.

Traffic Control:

Construction will be conducted primarily outside of the existing roadways and should have minimal impact on M-21/Fulton Street and Crahen Avenue traffic. Traffic is projected to shift to the new Crahen Avenue alignment during 2017, with remaining work to be conducted outside of the roadway in the spring of 2018.
