On March 2, 2021, the Saginaw City Council awarded a construction contract to GRod Construction, LLC for the reconstruction of W.J. Boaz from Old Decatur Road to approximately 475 feet east. The roadway will be widened with reinforced concrete pavement and sidewalks. The intersection at Old Decatur Road will be improved with new traffic signal and lane markings.
For several weeks, message boards have been in place near the location to advise the public of the upcoming closure. The roadway will be total closed from Old Decatur Road to Knowles Avenue beginning on May 17th and is scheduled to reopen by the end of August.
The closure will allow the roadway to be reconstructed in the most expeditious manner to work around the school schedule. Detours will be in place to route traffic to Park Center Boulevard during this time.
