Baker Road Roundabouts
In preparation for the roundabouts project, a DTE contractor will be relocating a gas main along Baker between Shield and Dan Hoey. During non-rush hour times, the contractor will need to reduce Baker Rd to one lane; two way traffic will be maintained with flagging. This project will start on Monday, May 7, 2018 at 9 am. This project will occur during the closure of Dexter Ann Arbor from Dan Hoey to Zeeb; drivers concerned about delay should consider taking Dexter Chelsea to Parker to Jackson to Baker to access I-94.
A public information meeting on the Baker Road roundabouts project will be held on Tuesday, May 22, 2018 at 6 pm at Creekside Intermediate School - 2615 Baker. This project includes the installation of roundabouts at Baker and Shield and Baker and Dan Hoey. The project was designed to improve the turning radius at Dan Hoey and Baker for large trucks heading to the Dexter Business and Research Park and improve the safety for vehicles turning left from Baker onto Shield. It also adds sidewalks to improve pedestrian connectivity. Construction is expected to start in mid-June once school is out for the summer. Baker Rd. will be closed to thru traffic from just south of Shield to north of Dan Hoey.
The detour map can be found in the attached flyer.

Baker Road Paving
As part of the roundabout project, Baker Road will be resurfaced from Dan Hoey to between Hudson and Grand. It is anticipated that this work will occur towards the end of the roundabout construction. During the resurfacing the road will be closed to thru traffic, but local access will be maintained.
Dan Hoey/Bishop Circle Intersection
Dexter Community Schools will be reconstructing a portion of Dan Hoey Road adjacent to the area of the school construction, including the Bishop Circle/Dan Hoey intersection (entrance to the Dexter Business and Research Park). As part of this work, the roadway will be widened by adding center turn lanes into the various school driveway. In addition, acceleration and deceleration lanes will be reconstructed. Two way traffic will be maintained throughout construction which will occur during summer recess.
Jeffords Road Closure
Jeffords Rd from the alley behind the PNC Bank to Forest will be closed during the construction of 150 Jeffords. This project is expected to start in early summer 2018.
Various roads in Dexter, including those that were cape sealed in 2016, will be crack sealed starting Monday, May 21, 2018. This work may cause intermittent delays, but will not require any road closures.
