MDOT is proposing to make the following improvements along two busy corridors in the Ann Arbor/Brighton area:
- Repair pavement along US-23 and M-14 between Silver Lake Road and I-94, as well as upgrading the median shoulder on US-23 between M-14 and M-36 (9 Mile Road); 
-  Replace bridges at 6 Mile Road, 8 Mile Road and N. Territorial Road;
- Widen bridges at Barker Road and the railroad bridge;
- Repair bridges at Joy Road, Warren Road, and M-14 over the Huron River and Barton Drive;
- Upgrade ramps at N. Territorial Road, 6 Mile Road, 8 Mile Road and M-36; and
- Install additional Intelligent Transportation System (ITS) hardware, including cameras and electronic message boards.

Also as part of the project, MDOT is considering installing an active traffic management system along US-23 between M-14 and M-36 to help manage peak-hour congestion. This system would use the upgraded median shoulders to help improve traffic flow and increase safety along the corridor.

At this meeting, residents can meet MDOT staff, view displays and learn more about MDOT's plans to improve US-23 and M-14.

MDOT says: Drive like you want to make it home tonight.
