Bay St. Crossing At Division St. Closed For Today/Tomorrow
UPDATE: Correction to headline/content added 9:50am to reflect correct dates.
The advanced notice along the TART Trail going east along Bay St. by Traverse City Light and Power is most appreciated. Seldom do we see notice for pedestrians and bicyclists as we approach construction zones, however, there is one thing slightly off about this sign’s message.
Anyone? … Want to take a guess?

Again, great job to TCLP on the crosswalk at Bay and Division St. and kudos for the public service announcement (below) that went out yesterday that announces that the Bay St. crosswalk will be closed through
Labor Day weekend Friday Sept. 2, but will not impact east west travel on the trail or crossings of Division and Grandview. Only the route to and from the Dairy Lodge is impacted. The crosswalk will be open this weekend.
And, as far as the sign goes, it’s a subtle bias and perspective that shines through often. The hint: bicyclists do have another choice, albeit it isn’t for everyone…Anyone?
PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT: August 31, 2011
Bikers and pedestrians should be aware that Traverse City Light and Power’s contractor, Molon Excavating, Inc. will be closing the north/south pedestrian crossing on bay street, west side of division street, beginning august 31 through approximately September 2. An alternate route using Randolph Street and Cedar Street is available and is marked with signs. All bike and pedestrian crosswalks across Division Street and across Grandview Parkway will remain open and not be affected.
Unfortunately, this construction will generate dust, noise and cause inconvenience. We would like to thank you in advance for your patience and cooperation.
Please contact Glen Dine, chief engineer, at 932-4551, if you have any questions, comments or concerns about the work or our schedule.
