The Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT) will invest $326,000 to temporarily widen 1.2 miles of M-72 from Baggs Road to McNulty Hill Road in Kalkaska County. This widening will be used to maintain traffic during next year's planned reconstruction of M-72 from Kalkaska to the Kalkaska/Grand Traverse county line.

This work will require traffic shifts. Work is scheduled for Monday through Friday, though some work on Saturdays is possible.
This project will allow for the safe maintenance of traffic during next year's construction project, with fewer lane closures under flag control.
