From the bridge to Military Road, the project will widen the roadway from two to three lanes with a center left-turn lane and realign the route with shallower curves. The remainder of the roadway, from Military Road to Sixth Street, will be paved. A side road, Slattery Road, will be closed from Second Street to M-26.
MDOT plans to maintain through-traffic throughout construction using temporary roadways under flag control. An alternate route along U.S.41 will be signed.
