Maple Road Reconstruction Update
The Maple Road Reconstruction Project is now 60 percent complete as crews continue to enhance the infrastructure. Work highlights from the past week included:

  • Completing the concrete curing phase and the sealing of concrete joints between North Old Woodward and Woodward.
  • Beginning to rough grade the sidewalks between North Old Woodward and Woodward.
  • Completing the 12-inch water main tie-in at Pierce Street and completing all water service connections between Pierce and Chester.
  • Beginning the fiber conduit installation and rough grading the road between Pierce and Chester.

Next week, crews are expected to begin the installation of the structural soil for tree boxes and begin work on the electrical system between Woodward and Old Woodward. Crews will work on the final subgrade cut for the road and continue to install fiber conduits between Pierce and Chester. Crews will also install the final leg of 12-inch water main and conduct the necessary testing between Chester and Bates.

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!
