BATTLE CREEK, Mich. - The Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT) is planning a four-year project to rebuild I-94 in Calhoun County from Helmer Road to F Drive North. MDOT has released a video on YouTube to help explain this Rebuilding Michigan project.
MDOT is planning the project to rebuild I-94 from west of the interchange with Helmer Road to F Drive North, a four-lane section divided freeway with an annual average daily traffic volume of 60,000 vehicles. In addition to rebuilding this section of I-94, work also includes replacing nine bridges and repairing five additional bridges.
The total investment for this project is estimated to be more than $120 million. Maintenance work to prepare for the main project will occur in 2022, while major work activities are expected to begin in 2023 and conclude in 2025.
