The view at the new 13-story Residence Inn Hotel by Marriott at 10 Ionia in downtown Grand Rapids. Work will force the closure of a portion of Fulton Avenue as work crews begin construction on some underground utilities. September 4, 2019.

(Grand Rapids) A major artery in downtown Grand Rapids, running along one of the largest attractions in the city, will be closing down over the next few months.

You should be prepared if you travel along Fulton between Ottawa and Division.  That section, right outside the Van Andel Arena, will start to close down beginning next week as crews work on the new 13-story Residence Inn by Marriott at 10 Ionia Ave.  The work will center around underground utilities that will force the closure of several streets.

As a result, sections of the road will start to close to traffic starting Monday, September 9.  Crews expect to have work done by mid-October.
