City of Saginaw MI -
Fordney and Ezra


The Fordney Street project includes 0.32 mile of road reconstruction, water main replacement, decorative street lighting, decorative stamped sidewalk, traffic signal improvements, new catch basins, pavement markings and signing on Fordney Street between Rust (M-46) and Ezra Rust. One half of the full road width will be completed in each of the two phases of this project; therefore, the detour route is expected to change midway through the project. The reconstruction and enhancement of Fordney Street will include a pedestrian table that will slow traffic and provide a specific crossing point for pedestrians and bicyclists visiting the variety of recreation opportunities available in the area. The City and a number of private businesses have invested in the recreation opportunities available along Fordney Street in the past several years and the influx of pedestrians, bicyclists and motorists has made the area popular to visit especially in summer months. In addition, 0.41 mile of milling and resurfacing, new curb and gutter, pavement markings and signing on Ezra Rust Drive between the East end of the Court Street Bridge and Washington Avenue will dramatically improve the condition of the highly traveled street and change the lane configuration to incorporate more on-street parking. Both Ezra Rust and Fordney Street projects will be completed simultaneously.


Tentatively scheduled to begin April 15, 2013. Proposed "open to traffic" on September 27, 2013. Seasonal watering and cultivating items to be completed by September 25, 2015.
