PORTAGE, MI – Drivers should expect to see more orange cones and closed road signs on the streets of Portage starting next week.

Construction will begin on Monday, May 24 along Portage Road and Milham Avenue, resulting in partial and total road closures.

East Milham Road, from South Westnedge Avenue to Newport Road, will be closed overnight, beginning at 9 p.m. on Monday, May 24, and through Tuesday and Wednesday, according to a press release from the Town of Portage. Night work is expected to be completed by 6 a.m. each morning.

Overnight closures are required for the construction of utility crossings, as part of the city’s East Milham Avenue reconstruction project. There will be periods of lane closures, but aisle access will be maintained except for brief periods during milling and paving operations.

The entire construction project is expected to be completed by Aug. 27, the statement said.

On Portage Road, drivers should expect curb lane closures for southbound traffic south of Romence Road starting at 8 a.m. Monday, according to a city statement. The closure of the lane is necessary for the construction of an access lane on the west side of Portage Road.

Work on Portage Road is nearing completion as part of facility upgrades at Pfizer’s pharmaceutical production campus.

The lane closure will be removed by June 4, weather permitting, the statement said. Motorists should find an alternate route to avoid delays.
