Agency: Transportation

WHAT:
The Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT) is implementing additional data collection as part of the US-10 Business Route (BR) corridor study through the city of Midland. To accommodate this data collection, a single-lane closure will be in place on US-10 BR (Buttles Street) between Jerome Street and State Street from Monday, Aug. 28, through Wednesday, Aug. 30. The lane closure will simulate a proposed road diet and its impact on traffic should US-10 BR be reduced to two lanes in each direction through the city of Midland. This lane closure is being set up for information collection only; no visible work will take place during this time. View a map of the study area on Mi Drive: https://goo.gl/Hiumwx.

Following the collection of this data, a public open house will be held on Sept. 13 to share the findings of the traffic study, and collect public input on proposed lane configurations on US-10 BR through the city of Midland. Individuals interested in learning more about the study findings are encouraged to attend the Sept. 13 meeting. MDOT and City of Midland staff will be on hand to answer questions.

BACKGROUND:
A corridor planning study is a high-level evaluation of safety, environmental and geometric concerns along a transportation corridor where needs, possible improvement options and costs are identified before a project can proceed. Community input and consensus is an important consideration in this process. It is important to note that the corridor planning study is part of a planning process and is not a design or construction project. This study addresses US-10 BR from Saginaw Road to Airport Road, and the area of the Poseyville Road/US-10 BR intersection.
