Road Closure Reminder: 8th Street in Traverse City

The Traverse City Police Department is reminding drivers that east 8th Street between Boardman and Woodmere Avenues is still closed.

The portion of road is currently closed down for construction.

But according to the Grand Traverse 911 Facebook page, they have had four instances where several people tried to drive through the area.

These have ended in tickets, towing fees and arrests.

Grand Traverse 911 says there are still signs and barricades in place along the closure.

You’re asked to avoid the area and take detours.
