Maple Road Reconstruction Update
The Maple Road Reconstruction Project continues to move along on schedule as crews work to enhance the infrastructure. Work highlights from the past week included:

  • Continuing to work on electrical and irrigation infrastructure between North Old Woodward and Woodward.
  • Pouring concrete drive and parking lanes between Pierce and Bates.
  • Preparing to pour concrete between Bates and Chester by making the final subgrade cuts and laying aggregate stone.

Next week, crews are expected to form and pour planter boxes and continue electrical and irrigation work between Woodward and Old Woodward. Crews expect to pour concrete for parking and driving lanes between Bates and Chester and replace the wood fencing with orange safety fencing between Pierce and Bates.

The Southfield and Maple intersection will be closed next week to begin demolition to reconfigure the intersection. 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!
