Maple Road Reconstruction Update
The Maple Road Reconstruction Project continues to make great progress as crews work to enhance the infrastructure. Work highlights from the past week included:

  • Completing the electrical and irrigation infrastructure work between North Old Woodward and Woodward.
  • Pouring and forming concrete tree boxes on the north side of Maple between North Old Woodward and Woodward.
  • Pouring concrete drive lanes between Bates and Chester, and curing the concrete drive lanes between Bates and Pierce.
  • Removing the pavement and traffic signals to begin the storm sewer installation at the Southfield intersection.

Next week, crews are expected to form and pour planter boxes on the south side of Maple between Woodward and Old Woodward. Crews expect to pour concrete for parking lanes between Bates and Chester and replace the wood fencing with orange safety fencing between Pierce and Bates. Crews will also begin installing structural soil for planter boxes between Pierce and Chester and pour concrete at both the Bates and Chester intersections.

The Southfield and Maple intersection will be closed next week to pour concrete. Southfield will be closed between Martin and Maple for 3-4 weeks. During the closure, please use the Phase 2 detour pictured below.

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!
