The Farmington Road Streetscape Project is a multi-million dollar infrastructure improvement made possible with a million dollar federal TAP grant through MDOT. We will keep you updated as this project unfolds; it has been a top priority among residents for more than a decade.
Concrete pouring begins Sept. 13, 2022
Sidewalks along Farmington Road close
The western sidewalk along Farmington Road from Grand River to Alta Loma are closed for the remainder the project. This is in preparation for the placement of concrete roadway and to allow for the concrete paving machinery to safely travel within the construction zone away from pedestrians. Additionally, upon completion of concrete road paving, the sidewalk construction will begin. The temporary pedestrian crosswalks previously placed through the middle of the project have already been removed.
No vehicular or pedestrian access will be permitted onto or across Farmington Road between Orchard Street and Grand River.
All businesses will continue to remain open during construction. Please utilize accessible rear and side entrances to all businesses where necessary.
Please see the below pedestrian detour map. The red line indicates closed walkways and the blue line indicates open/alternative walkways.
Farmington Road now closed for Streetscape Project
Farmington Road is now completely close from Grand River Avenue to Orchard Street for the duration of the Farmington Road Streetscape Project. While the Farmington Road Streetscape project will significantly impact traffic, the benefits will only heighten the community’s vibrancy.
The project is anticipated to last until late fall this year. We ask that everyone please adhere to the posted signage for detours around the construction site. The project includes street, sidewalk, and utility improvements as well as enhanced pedestrian connections, accessibility, and safety.
The construction will also impact Founders Festival, which will again be held in the downtown. The festival, including its kids area and crafters market, will be strategically moved to a parking area adjacent to Farmington Road and along Warner Street.
Businesses along Farmington Road will remain open during the project!!!
