Garfield Closed Between Front St, Peninsula Drive for Resurfacing

A new construction project is underway in Traverse City tonight.

Crews began work this evening along another stretch of Garfield Road in Traverse City.

Garfield is closed from East Front Street to Peninsula Drive.

Team Elmers is working on resurfacing the roadway.

They will be working on the project through the night.

They say choosing to work at these hours helps keep traffic and delays to a minimum, and work on the roadway has been needed for some time.

“It’s one of the sections of road in Traverse City that actually needs to be repaved so we’re doing this to improve its condition and try to keep it from getting pot holes and cracks,” says John Zarafonitis, City of Traverse City Engineering Department.

Construction on Garfield is set to wrap up around 9am tomorrow morning.
