This week, construction crews are finishing up construction on Phase 2 of the project: the Holt/Cedar intersection. So far, they have installed storm sewers, conduit lines for street lighting and traffic signals, and curbed the outside of the intersection for new curb and gutter. They will finish up with paving towards the end of this week. Phase 2 construction is set to be finished by next Monday, weather permitting.

Phase 3, the east side of Cedar Street, is scheduled to begin next week after the conclusion of Phase 2. When Phase 3 begins, Cedar Street will become a northbound only street again. Please follow the original detour from Phase 1.

Last week, construction crews finished up Phases 1 and 5 of the Realize Cedar project. This week, crews are working on the Holt/Cedar intersection. Currently, contractors are working on finishing removal of old material and installing new storm sewers. Crews are also working on the signals for the new intersection. This section of the project is scheduled to last for two weeks.

This week, crews are continuing to place sidewalks on the west side of Cedar Street, place electrical conduit for street lighting, and preparing to pave the roads.

In addition, work on Phase 5 of the project, from Willoughby to Aurelius Roads, has begun. 

Beginning Thursday, the right lanes of northbound and southbound Cedar Street will be closed for milling and repaving. There may be brief times during this roadwork when business driveways are not accessible. Construction crews will work as quickly as possible to ensure that temporary driveways are put in place, however, please use any available alternate entrances to these businesses, if possible. 

Once milling and repaving are finished in the right lanes, the center three lanes will be closed for reconstruction. During this time, cars will be unable to make left-hand turns into business driveways. 

This phase of the project is projected to last for three weeks. Please find alternate routes, follow posted detours, and drive safely. Continue to follow the Realize Cedar pages for up-to-date information on lane closures and detours.

March 26, 2018

Beginning on March 26, construction crews will begin removing trees along Cedar Street in preparation for the Realize Cedar project. Due to weight restrictions on the roads, the downed trees will need to be cut up and left in place on the sides of the road. The trees will be removed once the weight restrictions are lifted.
