Are you wondering about Ann Arbor Road Construction Closures? Construction is continuing and starting on various projects despite the COVID-19 virus. Fortunately, it is relatively easy to social distance at most road projects.
With projects by the City of Ann Arbor, Washtenaw County, other cities and townships, and MDOT, it can be difficult to find one source that lists all of the closures. We checked each source, and added details on current and upcoming closures.
Our list below focuses on complete road closures. There are also single lane closures that we have not included in this list.
Details on these projects and additional projects with lane closures can be found on the City of Ann Arbor’s Construction page.
