BACKGROUND:
MDOT staff and consultants will share project details on the upcoming replacement of the French Road and Concord Avenue overpasses above I-94. This work, part of the I-94 modernization project in Detroit, is expected to begin in March and end in November.  

The I-94 modernization project will improve safety and mobility by modernizing roughly 7 miles of I-94 between Conner Avenue and I-96. Included in the modernization is utility and bridge replacement, improvements to freeway interchanges, and construction of an additional freeway lane. Additional project information is available at https://i94detroit.org/home/.

In addition, MDOT staff will be available to discuss Michigan Mobility 2045 (MM2045), a collaborative effort to provide the public and key stakeholders an opportunity for engaging in establishing transportation priorities for the next 25 years.
