ESTIMATED COMPLETION DATE:
The Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT), Huron County Road Commission, and Huron and Eastern Railway will replace the box culvert at R.E.A. Drain and the railroad crossing on M-19 near McTaggart/Leppek Road. MDOT is committing $485,000 to fund the box culvert replacement for the Huron County Road Commission, and $50,000 to replace the Huron and Eastern Railway crossing. This work is being coordinated through multiple agencies to prevent additional closures of the M-19 corridor.

This work will require closing and detouring of M-19 near McTaggart/Leppek Road via Atwater Road, Bad Axe Road and Wadsworth Road. This work is weather dependent.
This work will improve the ride quality at the railroad crossing and improve roadside safety by extending the culvert further away from the roadway.
This road construction project is an essential function. Transportation workers in the field follow Centers for Disease Control guidelines to limit their risk of getting sick.
