Work begins on Eureka Road, between Racho and Allen

The long-awaiting resurfacing of Eureka Road between Racho and Allen roads has started. This roadwork is being done in preparation for the Menards' Trader's Point development on the old Gibraltar Trade Center property.
Wayne County contracted with Ajax Paving Industries to resurface Eureka Road from Allen Road to Racho Road. Work is starting today, Tuesday, August 30. Traffic is being diverted into one lane in both directions. The existing asphalt surface on the two outside curb lanes will be milled off, the existing road base stabilized, and concrete base repairs made.

Drainage and utility structures will be repaired and adjusted. Underground electrical work will be performed and new foundations for traffic signals will be installed. Sidewalks and crosswalks will be replaced and improved in areas. Then the lanes will receive two layers of new asphalt. This work will last approximately four to five weeks
Access to all businesses on Eureka from Allen to Racho will be maintained during the duration of the work.
Once the two outside curb lanes have been completed, traffic will be diverted to those lanes and the median lane will be worked on in the same manner as before.This work will last approximately three to four weeks.
Following the resurfacing, landscaping, restoration and clean-up will be performed and are scheduled to be completed by November 1.
New traffic signals will be installed in the Spring 2017. The existing street lighting and signals will remain active until then.
Should you have any questions or concerns please contact the Wayne County Project Engineer, Martin Wininger, at 734-595-6504, Ext. 2065, or Greg Mayhew, Taylor City Engineer, at 734-374-1473, or by email at gmayhew@ci.taylor.mi.us.
