BATTLE CREEK, Mich. — City crews will make final repairs following a previous water main break by restoring the road surface on South Washington Avenue, resulting in the closure of the northbound lane of a section of Washington Thursday, April 27.

The specific section of South Washington Avenue affected by this closure is:

  • Northbound lane of South Washington Avenue, from West Jackson Street to Michigan Avenue West

A detour will be in place for northbound South Washington Avenue traffic, as follows:

  • Northbound traffic should take a left on West Jackson Street, a right on South Kendall Street, a right on Michigan Avenue West, and then take a left to resume northbound on South Washington Avenue.

Crews expect the road surface repair work to be completed within the timeframe of 8–11 a.m.

The water main break on South Washington Avenue originally occurred Friday, April 21, with city water crews completing initial repair work by Sunday, April 23.

We appreciate everyone’s patience during all work on our city’s infrastructure.
