[ARCHIVED] Crews continue wind storm cleanup

Traffic signal without power

City crews continue to remove fallen trees and monitor traffic signals after Wednesday’s high winds across Battle Creek and the state.

After about 50 reports of downed trees and limbs, the following roads still are closed to thru traffic this morning:

  • Vale Street – East Michigan Avenue to Cliff Street
  • Elizabeth at Sherman
  • Hanover Street – West Emmett Street to Walter Avenue
  • Parkway Drive at Howland Street
  • Blenken Court – Parkway Drive to Howland Street
  • Myrtle Avenue – North Bedford Road to East Willard Avenue
  • Wentworth Avenue – Highland Avenue to Foster Avenue
  • Fairfield Avenue – South Beckman Avenue to South LaVista Boulevard
  • East Minges Road – Riverside Drive to East Court
  • East Hamilton Lane – Riverside Drive to Reyn Circle

There are seven traffic signals running on generator power this morning, on M-66, Washington Avenue and Michigan Avenue. The signal at Washington Avenue and Sanitarium is temporarily turned off, due to low voltage.

The following intersections remain four-way stops, with signage:

  • South Helmer Road at Beckley Road
  • South Helmer Road at Watkins Road
  • West Roosevelt Avenue at Hubbard Street
  • Morgan Road at North Avenue

Crews hope this week to inspect parks, the Linear Park path, cemeteries, and Willard Beach.

Please continue to be alert as you travel through the city, as cleanup continues. Officials appreciate everyone’s patience.
