JACKSON, MI – Originally expected to make the change this summer, downtown Jackson’s one way streets won’t be altered for two-way traffic until this fall.

The conversion of Louis Glick Highway and Washington Avenue is part of the W. Michigan Avenue project with the Michigan Department of Transportation. In total, the entire project costs nearly $20 million.

Roughly a third of the costs go to the city.

All signal and railroad crossing updates must be completed before the traffic patterns can change, MDOT Spokeswoman Keri Arend said in an email. Lighting and signal work is 40 percent complete.

Once converted, the downtown loop will have one lane in each direction with a center turn lane.
