City of Saginaw, Michigan

April 25, 2023 SAGINAW, MI –The warm weather in Saginaw brings many wonderful things, including construction projects and road improvements. Travis Hare, City Engineer, provided an update on future road and construction projects at the April 17, 2023 City Council Meeting. Citizens can view this presentation on our YouTube channel at

Road construction for 2023 includes reconstruction on Mackinaw Street from
Congress Avenue to S. Alexander Street, and reconstruction on Meredith Street.
Construction Projects also include Genesee Avenue Bridge rehabilitation work and preventative maintenance on the Johnson Street Bridge. There will also be several ADA sidewalk ramps installed and sidewalk replacements in the city during the summer of 2023.

In an effort to keep citizens informed of road construction, closures, and the impact on travel throughout Saginaw, the City’s website features an interactive road construction map and project dashboard to help residents and travelers navigate the City’s planned road repairs. To view the City’s webpage, click the “Road Closures and Construction Projects” quick link on our homepage, or click here. The webpage provides information on all current road construction projects and bridge repairs, project timelines, maps, and the detour routes. Citizens can click on the various projects and road closures listed in the left margin to see the project detail, or just click the project on the map and the project detail will be shown. Details on all current projects are also listed at the bottom of the webpage.

Improving our roads has been and will continue to be a key priority for the City of Saginaw. Although these projects can cause detours and travel delays, better roads enhance travel and safety in our neighborhoods and ultimately lead to the long-term greater good of our community.

City Engineer Travis Hare commented on this year’s construction season, “We are pleased to start these important projects in the city. We understand these projects will affect quite a few people who live and work in the city. I encourage citizens to visit our webpage for updates on all our road and construction projects. The interactive map and project information will help keep citizens informed as they plan their routes and should make this construction season a little easier on everyone.”
