A contractor for the city began work on Monday, Oct. 12, to realign the curb and gutter and replace the sidewalk ramp at the southeast corner of the intersection of North Avenue and Emmett Street near Kellogg Community College’s North Avenue campus in Battle Creek.

The intersection will be open during this work. However, North Avenue northbound traffic will not be permitted to turn left onto Emmett Street; the thru lane on northbound North Avenue will be closed.

Work is expected to be completed by Friday, Oct. 16, weather permitting. The city appreciates everyone’s patience during this project.
