PROJECT DETAILS:
The Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT) is continuing its $60 million investment to reconstruct M-59 (Hall Road) in Macomb County, with phase II between Dalcoma Drive, just west of Garfield Road, and Romeo Plank Road.

Early next week, underground utility and electrical work will begin for installation of temporary traffic signals. In March, reconstruction will begin near the phase II area with the current crossover lane, west of Romeo Plank Road, being extended as a fourth lane to the intersection.

The project includes replacing concrete with asphalt, improving drainage, upgrading ramps to be compliant with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), and installing new sidewalks to fill in the missing gaps along M-59. Work also includes installing new modern traffic signals, replacing signs, enhancing landscaping, and adding decorative crosswalks.
