The crosswalk upgrades will involve reconstructing the crosswalks to comply with the federal Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).

During the project, the road will be closed in two phases. The first phase will encompass the section from east of Crooks Road to Livernois Road.

Once the first phase is complete, the second phase will start. The second phase will run from Adams Road to Crooks Road. During both phases, the detour route for through traffic will be Adams to Hamlin to Livernois and vice versa.

The project is expected to start in spring 2014 and be completed in fall 2014.
