The Maple Road Reconstruction Project is now 50 percent complete as crews continue to enhance the infrastructure and pour concrete. Work highlights from the past week include:
- Pouring concrete drive lanes and completing the installation of fiber optic conduits between Old Woodward and Woodward.
- Completion of concrete road work at Peabody and Park.
- Installation of sanitary sewer leads between Pierce and Chester, including investigation of location and functionality, exploratory digging and dye testing is now about 80 percent complete.
- Installing 500 feet of 12-inch water main between Pierce and Bates.
Next week, crews will pour concrete for the parking lanes between Woodward and Old Woodward, continue sanitary lead installation and begin installing water service lines that are two-inch diameter or less between Pierce and Chester. Work will also continue on water and fiber lines in the Chester intersection. Per MDOT’s specifications, crews will not be working July 3-5 in observance of the Independence Day holiday.
The Maple Road Reconstruction Project is the second phase in the City’s three-phase plan to improve infrastructure in downtown Birmingham. When complete, Maple Road’s improvements will allow it to manage traffic more effectively; provide an attractive experience for pedestrians, bicyclists and motorists; and serve the community for decades to come!
