Please be advised, the City of Flint will begin re-striping Chevrolet Avenue from Glenwood to the Flint River Tuesday, Oct. 9, (scheduled to avoid our Dog Day on Monday). The work should be completed next week barring any delays. This will reduce this section of road from four lanes to three lanes to match the adjacent sections and alleviate the merging confusion. Expect lane closure and delays through this stretch leading into campus.
The delays in having this completed when the gateway was completed stem from the historical significance of the bridge. As the site of the sit down strike, approvals had to be obtained from the historical folks because this was a change from what was approved and built when the bridge was restored.
Please drive safely in the area during construction.
