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

The project includes 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.

For additional project details, go to www.MovingMacomb.org, which also provides updates on lane restrictions, access to businesses, and traffic times to travel through the work zone.

SAFETY BENEFITS:
This project will maintain safety with a smoother driving surface, improved drainage, and updated road signs. Pedestrian access will be improved as well.
