MDOT is planning to remove two US-12 bridges over M-51 in 2023 and currently is looking at several alternatives for replacing the current interchange.

The study contains traffic operations, pavement treatment, storm sewer inspection, environmental resource, and public engagement components.

Short presentations on study progress are planned at 4:15 p.m. and 5:15 p.m. Study information is posted to the MDOT study website at,4616,7-151-9621_11058-470518--,00.html.
