Major GR intersection to close in April

GRAND RAPIDS (WZZM) - A major Grand Rapids intersection will close for two weeks in April for a major overhaul.

The corner of Michigan Street and Fuller Avenue NE will close for a complete concrete overhaul next month. The exact dates and length of the closure have yet to be determined, but the city says that the closure should be in affect for up to two weeks.

Grand Rapids Communications Director Steve Guitar says that by doing the complete closure, the project will be done within two weeks, where doing it in other phases could have taken two to three months.

The city is hosting meetings for citizens, business owners, and anyone else interested on March 26 at Wealthy Park Baptist Church at 2233 Michigan Street NE from 2:00pm - 3:00pm and from 6:00pm - 7:00pm.

During construction southbound Fuller traffic coming off of I-196 should exit at either College Avenue or the East Beltline. Michigan Street detours will use Fulton and Leonard Streets. Fuller detours will be routed to either College or Diamond Avenues.

The city says the intersection's concrete is 25 years old and in poor condition. The project is part of the Vital Streets investment using MDOT's Priority Road Investment Program.
