PROJECT DETAILS:
MDOT will invest $29 million to reconstruct and resurface parts of M-24 in Oakland County.

Construction scheduled to start this spring and end in the fall.

Project map

Last fall, multiple utility companies performed needed relocation work in anticipation of this project, which required continuous single-lane closures through downtown Oxford with other intermittent lane closures.

The public will be kept informed on this project via the project website at www.RestoreM24.info.

SAFETY BENEFIT:
Extending the center left-turn lanes, improving the pavement surface, adjusting lane widths, and consolidating driveways will increase motorist safety by reducing the number of crashes in this area.
