WYOMING, Mich. — Several intersections on 28th Street M-11 were scheduled this year for reconstruction, and the Clyde Park Avenue intersection project has begun.

The first phase of the project has closed Clyde Park Avenue at at the south side of the intersection until August 12. To get to Clyde Park Avenue south of 28th Street or to get to 28th Street from south of the intersection, use Burlingame Avenue instead.

Traffic on 28th Street will be seeing backups at the intersection with a traffic shift that reduces eastbound and westbound to one lane.

There is access to Clyde Park Avenue on the north side of the intersection.

Improvements will be made to the pavement, sidewalks, curbs, gutters, utilities, traffic signals, and more.

After August 12, the traffic shift will move, and the Clyde Park Avenue will be closed on the north side of the intersection.
