The Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT) will hold a public open house to discuss nearly 1 mile of planned improvements on M-46 through Pine River Township and the city of St. Louis.

MDOT plans to resurface the roadway while also building a center-left turn lane from Hidden Oaks Drive to the Pine River Bridge. Additional improvements include drainage, driveway upgrades, new signs, and pavement markings. Work is expected to begin April 16 and reopen to traffic by Aug. 22.

Accommodations can be made for persons with disabilities and limited English speaking ability. Large print materials, auxiliary aids or the services of interpreters, signers, or readers are available upon request. Please call 517-373-9534 to request at least seven days before meeting date.

The addition of the center left-turn lane is intended to reduce left-turn and rear-end crashes. Resurfacing the pavement will create a smooth driving surface and extend the life of the roadway.

One lane of alternating traffic will be maintained during work. Lane closures will only be in effect during daytime working hours, with additional consideration being made for holiday weekends and local community festivals.
