Project 4 Begins with Important Changes to Your Route
Three of the five scheduled MCORE projects have already been completed. Project 4 is scheduled to launch in March 2019 with closures on Armory Avenue between Sixth and Fourth. The full project corridor includes Armory Avenue, (between Fourth Street and Wright Street) and Wright Street (between Armory Avenue and Springfield Avenue).
Project 4 will provide reconstruction of the existing pavement, sidewalks, pavement markings, and replacement of the storm and sanitary sewers. The project will occur in stages, over two construction seasons, with a final completion date of December 2020. This page provides details on MTD’s route changes associated with the first stage of Project 4.
The first stage involves rebuilding the northbound lane of Wright Street from south of Chalmers Street to south of Green Street. Northbound traffic will be maintained throughout this stage.
Stage 2 involves the rebuilding of Armory Avenue from Sixth Street to Wright Street and on Wright Street to south of Chalmers Street. This includes the entire intersection of Sixth and Armory. The south side of Armory Street between Fourth Street and Sixth Street will also be under construction.
Phase 3: August - December
The third stage will happen during the fall semester and will continue until the winter shutdown at the end of November. This involves rebuilding Wright Street, much like Stage 1, but expanding work to the southbound lane of Wright Street. Additionally, work will also take place on the north side of Armory Street between Fourth Street and Sixth Street. And once again, northbound traffic will be maintained on Wright Street during this construction on the southbound lane.
