BACKGROUND:
MDOT plans to invest roughly $5 million to reconstruct a 2-mile section of US-23 from south of Washington Street to south of Lakeshore Drive in Harrisville and Haynes Townships in Alcona County. The project will include new road base and asphalt pavement, drainage improvements, commercial driveway upgrades, slope restoration, and pavement markings.

This work will require a detour for US-23 traffic for much of the project using M-72, Barlow Road and F-41, in agreement with the Village of Lincoln and the Alcona County Road Commission. Access to businesses and residences in the construction zone will be maintained.

Work is tentatively scheduled to begin in early 2021 with the road reopened to traffic by the Fourth of July holiday.
