Extended intersection closure causes frustration for Saginaw businesses

Saginaw businesses are facing challenges due to the closure of a major intersection on Sheridan Avenue and Hess Avenue. The construction, which started unexpectedly on Monday, March 25, is expected to last for months.

Fred Temple, an employee at the family-owned Hand Dipped Ice Cream, arrived at work to find hard hats and orange barrels due to the reconstruction project. The closure has impacted the flow of traffic, with the city urging residents to find alternate routes to their destinations.

Temple believes that the closure will deter customers from visiting the shop, especially during the upcoming Fourth of July celebrations. Despite this challenge, Temple is still encouraging people to visit Hand Dipped Ice Cream for its delicious treats, including ice cream, tacos and tostadas.

In addition to the intersection closure on Sheridan Avenue and Hess Avenue, Gratiot Avenue (M-46) is also closed between Malzahn Street and Wheeler Street for utility work until Friday afternoon, March 29. These closures have created disruptions for businesses and residents in Saginaw.
