Traverse City, MI – Motorists and pedestrians should be aware that Traverse City Light & Power’s (TCL&P’s) contractor, Severance Electric Company, Inc., will be closing the northbound lane of Union Street over the Union Street Bridge to all northbound traffic from October 5 thru October 23, 2015 for the installation of underground conduit. Traffic flow will be one way only for southbound traffic. Detour signage will be in place.

The work is part of the multi-phase Pine and State Street Underground Project that began in mid-July in collaboration with the City of Traverse City. Expected to be complete by March 2016, the project involves converting the existing overhead distribution facility to underground from behind the Hall Street Substation, crossing the Boardman River south along Pine Street, east along State Street to Union Street, then south along Union Street and ending at Lay Park. Also included, is the line along the alley south of State Street between Union and Cass Street.

Please use alternate routes avoiding this area to reduce congestion, delay and promote worker safety. Appropriate signage and barricades will be in place in and around the work area.

Unfortunately, this work will create a minimal level of noise and cause some inconvenience. We would like to thank you in advance for your patience and cooperation. Please contact Blake Wilson, System Engineer at 231-932-4544 if you have any questions or concerns about the work or schedule.
