    • Those traveling westbound on S Michigan St wishing to access 6th Ave S or 5th Ave S north of S Michigan St will be rerouted via 4th Ave S to S Front St and back to 6th Ave S or 5th Ave S
  • Police officers or flaggers will assist with traffic
  • Signed detours will be posted
  • Sidewalks will remain accessible, with occasional detours for people walking
  • Emergency vehicles can access the work zone
