US-12 (Michigan Ave.) Reconstruction, Saline

Start: April 2016     End: Spring 2017
Investment: $11.1 million
What Is Being Done?

The Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT) will reconstruct US-12 (Michigan Avenue) in downtown Saline from N. Maple Road/Old Creek Drive to the bridge over the Saline River. Work includes widening US-12 to five lanes between Lewis Street and Harris Street to add a center turn lane, storm sewer and water main upgrades, sidewalk improvements, and traffic signal upgrades.

In addition, downtown amenities will be updated as part of a streetscape enhancement grant in partnership with the City of Saline. These upgrades include enhanced crosswalks at major intersections, the addition of mid-block islands, and enhanced lighting along the corridor.

How Will Traffic Be Affected?
  • On lane of westbound US-12 traffic will be open between Monroe Street and Maple Road, with eastbound traffic detoured using Henry Street.
  • One lane will be open in each direction between the bridge and Monroe Street. There also will be short-term intersection closures with a detour posted.

The roadway is expected to reopen to traffic by November 2016, with project completion by spring 2017.
