This Gull Street Roundabout construction project doesn't seem all that big, Work starts on Wednesday (May 31st) and should be done by July 20th. But it could be a traffic nightmare for those two months. The reason being, many commuters use Gull Street to Ransom to avoid trains crossing Kalamazoo and Michigan Avenues. On Thursday, a Southbound train, crossing at Pitcher St. at 8 AM, backed up westbound traffic approximately 15-20 minutes.

As a reminder, here are the streets affected by this project just approved a few weeks ago:

Ransom Street from Walbridge Street to Harrison Street

  • Harrison Street from Willard Street to North Street
  • Gull Street from Harrison Street to North Street

The City says Harrison Street will remain open to all business but closed to through traffic.
