Hoover/Greene/Hill Project Update Sept 17th

The following update was emailed on Sept 17, 2019 by Chris Wall, Project Manager for the City of Ann Arbor. For any questions or concerns with this project (or to be added to his email list of construction updates), he can be contacted at 734-794-6410 ext 43661 or by email at cwall@a2gov.org

The contractor is focused on utility, road and sidewalk work on Hill Street and Greene Street. The following work by the contractor is planned for this week (which could change based on construction progress/weather):

  • Concrete sidewalk and driveway placement and asphalt paving of the Kipke/Greene/Keech intersection - concrete is currently being placed with the intent to pave the intersection this coming weekend. After the intersection is completed, this intersection will be reopened to traffic.

  • Utility work on Hill Street between Brown Street and Fifth Avenue.

  • The '950 Greene' contractor is installing water main and storm sewer in Greene Street between Hoover and Davis. 

There is one anticipated water main shutdown that will occur this week that we wanted to notify the subscribers on. While performing water main work last Friday, it was found that some sanitary sewer and water main was in poor condition and therefore necessitates the need to replace them. We apologize for this disruption. The area of shutdown is as follows (which could change based on construction progress/weather):


Hill Street - a temporary water main shutdown has been scheduled to replace water main at the intersection of Hill Street and Greene Street. This shutdown will impact buildings/properties on Hill Street between Brown and Fifth. This could also impact a UM building and additional coordination is underway to confirm this. Each impacted building will receive an orange door hanger notification.

We do want to reiterate the orange door hanger message recommending that you run the cold water faucets for several minutes to clear the water after each shutdown. 

For properties adjacent to Hill Street, please contact our lead inspector, Jason Yoscovits at 734-771-3926, if you have questions or concerns during the water shutdown.
