MDOT has taken the input from the initial public meeting in May 2018 and developed those concepts for roadway and operations improvements along the M-43 corridor. These concepts will be presented to the public, and there will be a brief presentation at both 4 and 5 p.m.

Maps of the corridor area will be available for guests to mark with comments, and attendees will be able to provide input on the concepts provided.
