PROJECT:
The Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT) is performing resurfacing, repairs and sewer installation work at the I-69 BL (Saginaw Highway)/Marsh Road and I-69 BL/Old M-78 intersections. This work is part of the ongoing $2.5 million safety investment to improve four intersections along I-69 BL in Meridian and Bath townships in Ingham and Clinton counties.

TRAFFIC RESTRICTIONS:
During this work, westbound Saginaw Highway traffic will not be able to turn left onto southbound Marsh Road. Drivers will be directed to continue past Marsh Road and use an indirect left-turn lane to loop back via eastbound Saginaw Highway and turn right onto southbound Marsh Road.

Other restrictions include:

  • No northbound or southbound Marsh Road traffic permitted through the intersection, and
  • No left turns from eastbound Saginaw Highway to northbound Marsh Road.

Traffic signal work will be ongoing.

Delays are expected; an alternate route is advised.

SAFETY BENEFITS:
Repairs and maintenance help preserve the roadway and create a smoother, safer driving surface for drivers.

Closing lanes during this type of work is necessary to provide the safest work area possible for crews and motorists.
