The Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT) is investing $4.2 million to complete emergency culvert replacements on 11 structures along M-65 in Arenac County. This culvert work will replace damaged infrastructure resulting from flooding in May 2020, including M-65 at Big Creek and M-65 at Jose Drain, which remain closed to traffic.
M-65 remains closed from US-23 to Main Street in Twining, with traffic detoured via North Main Street in Omer, Walker Road, and Main Street toward Twining. This detour will remain in place through the end of work in July.
M-65 north of Twining will have single-lane closures and temporary signals from Main Street to Leggett Road.
This work will replace infrastructure damaged by flooding and prevent future scour concerns.
