BACKGROUND:
Currently, MDOT is preparing an environmental assessment for proposed improvements to US-23, north of Ann Arbor, between M-14 and Silver Lake Road. The alternatives under study include replacing and upgrading existing pavement, median shoulders, bridges, and entrance and exit ramps along the corridor.

MDOT also is considering installing an active traffic management system along US-23 between M-14 and M-36 to help manage peak-hour congestion. This system would use the upgraded median shoulders to help improve traffic flow and increase safety along the corridor.

At this meeting, residents can meet MDOT staff, view displays and learn more about MDOT's plans to improve US-23.

Construction is tentatively scheduled for 2016.
