The Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT) will complete a road diet along M-29 from Palmer Road to the north city limit of St. Clair. Work includes adjusting pavement markings to accommodate a dedicated center left-turn lane, marked shoulders for nonmotorized traffic, and signal timing improvements.

Traffic will be maintained with lane closures, shifts, and traffic regulators. Following the completion of the road diet, the following permanent lane configuration changes will remain:
- M-29 north of Clinton Street to the city limits will have one lane in each direction with a dedicated center left-turn lane, and striped shoulders for nonmotorized traffic.
- M-29 south of Clinton Street to Palmer Road will have one northbound lane, two southbound lanes, and a dedicated center left-turn lane.
This work is weather dependent.
This road diet will improve traffic operations for both motorized and nonmotorized users, while also providing safety improvements typical of road diet implementation.
