Check E-Build Detroit's Website to Avoid Downtown Construction

The Mayor's office, in partnership with WWJ Newsradio 950 in Detroit, have created a very resourceful website in an effort to keep Detroiters informed of construction projects happening in the downtown area. The website, called Build Detroit, discusses the city's current construction zones, which are in the following five areas:

-Grand River, between Woodward Avenue and Library, and Grand River between Woodward Avenue and Griswold

-Michigan Avenue, between Griswold and Washington Boulevard

-Broadway, southbound between Witherell and Gratiot Avenue

-Congress and Shelby

-Woodward Avenue, in varying spots

The site contains detailed information on the above closings, as well as specific dates the areas are set to close and re-open. In addition, pictures of the construction sites are also available.

So, the next time you plan to head downtown, take a moment to check out this informative site. You'll be able to navigate around the traffic and laugh at the people that are stuck in it : )
