BACKGROUND:
MDOT plans to invest $15.4 million in 2023-2024 to rebuild 1.6 miles of M-20 (Pickard Road) from US-127 Business Route (Mission Street) to east of the northbound US-127 ramps. MDOT is also proposing the addition of roundabouts at the M-20/US-127 interchange to address congestion and crash concerns and eliminate the need for traffic signals. More information regarding MDOT's use of roundabouts is available online.

COMMENT FORM:
Public input is being sought to help MDOT recognize and address any concerns that may result from the project. Please provide concerns/comments by April 27, 2021.
