PHASE II OF MONROE REPAVING will involve many restrictions
This is an update for Phase II (Wick Road to Ecorse Road) of the Monroe Boulevard Project.
Material limitations and several unfavorable weather days have caused unfortunate delays in the construction schedule. As a result, logistical limitations have been placed into the Phase II plan of this project in an effort to make our best attempt to complete the project this year.
The contractor will begin Phase II on Friday September 15. Monroe Boulevard will be reduced to one lane of traffic (northbound only) until the middle of November.
All of the access streets to Monroe will be closed to limit traffic and eliminate vehicles from entering or exiting Phase II of the construction.
Monroe between Wick and Ecorse will be open only to local traffic (residents who live on Monroe between these two end points).
Every effort will be made to allow Monroe residents access to their driveways, access to school buses, emergency vehicles, mail services and rubbish services.
However, delays should be expected for anyone who lives or typically utilizes this section of Monroe.
All residents who live on this section of Monroe are requested to park their vehicles on adjacent streets (if possible and feasible) to avoid delays.
Priority Waste has been told to perform all of their scheduled pickups prior to 7 a.m. on their scheduled pickup day.
Taylor School buses are being requested to use alternate routes (if possible).
All residents who live on the adjacent streets to Monroe are requested to use alternate routes.
The Department of Public Works understands that these restrictions will create delays and confusion for residents. Unfortunately, these restrictions must be made at this time. We apologize for any inconvenience in advance.
