Fuller at Glen Construction

Question Corner: September 2020

by Tim Athan

From the September, 2020 issue

Q. Fuller at Glen is under construction for a second time in as many years. Could you find out why the same area would be torn up a second time?

A. It's the Southside Interceptor Sanitary Diversion Project, which will divert excess sanitary sewer flow from the Southside Sewer (the major sewer line that services downtown and the west side of Ann Arbor) into the Northside Sewer. It's needed because the Southside Sewer sometimes overflows during heavy rains.

It's a substantial project, including the construction of a large underground chamber. City spokesperson Robert Kellar emails that work began last year, but had to be stopped in May 2019 to await Amtrak's review (required because the construction is near the railroad right-of-way).

Work resumed last August, then was idled over the winter. Construction resumed in May of this year, with the same Fuller Street closure and detour. Weather permitting, Kellar emails, "the roadway will be re-opened to vehicular traffic by mid-September."
