Baker Road Roundabouts
Baker Road from south of Shield to north of Dan Hoey is closed. 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. The road is expected to re-open prior to the start of school in September.
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.
Construction started on June 25, 2018.
