Road Construction!

roadRoad Construction – the curse of Michigan summers! We have some major road construction on Evergreen Road outside of the Library this summer — you can read more about the project here.

For now, be aware that traffic is limited to one lane in each direction on Evergreen and that the going is pretty slow at times. In addition, Civic Center Drive is closed between Central Park Boulevard and Evergreen Road until October 4th.  We look forward to seeing you at the end of your journey!
