TC’s 8th Street Could Be Open to Drivers Next Month

Drivers could be back on 8th street in Traverse City a month from now, because construction is ahead of schedule.

The engineering firm handling the project told city commissioners this week that traffic could start moving again as early as September 15. That’s assuming ideal weather conditions and no other delays.

Landscaping and bike paths along the road are also on the list for construction crews, but the road could open before those are finished. The project’s final completion date is November first.
