For Downriver drivers, relief is in sight.
According to Southgate Mayor Joe Kuspa, Wyane County has informed the city that repairs to Eureka Road between Dix and Fort Street will begin July 15.
The work was initially slated to begin May 15, but because county work on the Dix bridge was so far backed up, work on Eureka was delayed. The Dix bridge rebuild is now expected to be wrapped up by July 1.
Eureka will be resurfaced, not rebuilt, meaning the top layer of roadway will be ground down and recovered with blacktop. Because of that, the work is not expected to take a long time. The country estimates that the work will be completed by late October or early November.
Kuspa said the county has not said how the roadwork will be done, but the county has assured the city that there will be no closures of the vital artery.
