MDOT virtual public meeting Aug. 18 to discuss proposed road diet on I-69 BL (Hancock Street) in Port HuronContact: Jocelyn Hall, MDOT Office of Communications, 989-245-7117 Agency: Transportation
The Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT) will hold a virtual live Microsoft Teams event to discuss a proposed road diet for the I-69 Business Loop (BL) (Hancock Street) in Port Huron between M-25 (Pine Grove Avenue) and the I-69/I-94 ramps.
The proposed road diet will change the existing lane configuration from two lanes in each direction to one lane in each direction with a dedicated center turn lane. This work would be completed during pavement marking updates, eliminating additional costs associated with changing the lane configuration. Signal work will also begin Monday, Aug. 17, at the I-69 BL/ M-25 (Pine Grove Avenue) intersection. Completing the road diet and pavement markings during this time will reduce the impact on drivers.

The current lane configuration of I-69 BL between M-25 and the I-69/I-94 ramps is no longer needed as traffic volumes have changed in recent years. The new lane configuration will help to eliminate confusion during turning movements at intersections and reduce the potential of rear-end crashes.
Public input is being sought to help MDOT recognize and address any public concerns that may result from the proposed road diet. Comments and questions can be directed to:
