Fifth Avenue North: The highway from Detroit Street to Catherine Street will have one lane change until June 21, 2024.

Construction of a five-story mixed-use building plans to convert the southbound west lane of North Fifth Avenue between Detroit and Catherine streets into a work zone. This will shift traffic to the east lane to the south.

This lane closure will allow Huron Contracting to work on the development that plans to bring 14 residential condominiums above the ground floor retail space plus indoor/underground parking.

While this construction is taking place, access to local businesses and vehicle driveways will be maintained during the closure. Pedestrians will have to use the east side of North Fifth Avenue.

The job requires the group to take over the eastbound lane of West Madison Street.

The lane closure is in effect 24 hours a day during the project. Eastbound traffic from West Madison Street will change to the left turn lane at the intersection of South Main Street.
