Baker Road Gas Main Relocation

Construction season starts in Dexter on Monday, May 7, 2018.

In preparation for the roundabouts project, a DTE contractor will be relocating a gas main along Baker between Shield and Dan Hoey. During non-rush hour times, the contractor will need to reduce Baker Rd to one lane; two way traffic will be maintained with flagging. This project will start on Monday, May 7, 2018 at 9 am. This project will occur during the closure of Dexter Ann Arbor from Dan Hoey to Zeeb; drivers concerned about delay should consider taking Dexter Chelsea to Parker to Jackson to Baker to access I-94.

Please proceed with caution and patience through construction zones.

With this in mind, we are reaching out to Dexter-area residents on behalf of the artists to find people that may be interested in hosting one of the artists from Monday, August 13th through Saturday, August 18th. If you are one of those interested individuals, please let us know by filling out the Host an Artist form available at:
