The full length of Hamilton Ave. (in downtown Birmingham) was completely rebuilt, including new sewer, water, street, sidewalks, and street lights. The street was closed to vehicular traffic from April through the end of June, but sidewalks remained open to businesses.  Other streets that were included in the project were N. Old Woodward Ave. (Oakland Blvd. to Hamilton Ave. ) for sewer work, and Park St. (Hamilton Ave. to Maple Rd.) for the installation of a new concrete street. 

Update - July 1, 2016
Hamilton Ave. and Park St. opened back up to through traffic on July 1st, on schedule as originally planned. The road was swept and initial pavement markings were installed. 
Additionaliy, pavement markings for crosswalks and parking spaces were completed, as well as signs and parking meter posts. We are grateful to all who were involved in making this project a success.
