If you work in downtown Grand Rapids brace yourself.  Rush hour traffic will turn into a nightmare if you are not prepared.  Beginning Wednesday morning the Fulton and Monroe intersection will be closed.  You'll have to plan another way to get through part of downtown Grand Rapids.

The intersection will be closed for close to three weeks so some much needed repairs can be completed. This intersection will temporarily reopen with one lane heading in each direction March 30th.

After this intersection repair is completed the second phase will close the intersection at Fulton and Ottawa beginning March 15th.   All construction should be completed by May!
