In an effort to improve safe access to two schools and for residents, the Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT) has issued a permit to the Grand Ledge Public Schools (GLPS) to build a roundabout on M-43 at Timber Lake Drive. The project is being funded by the GLPS.
MDOT will be closing M-43 at Timber Lake Drive and at Old Saginaw Highway. Please follow posted detours. Motorists should expect delays and are advised to seek alternate routes.
This roundabout will provide improved access to Beagle Elementary School and Grand Ledge High School and increased safety for motorist. MDOT has a video available on its YouTube channel showing how to properly drive through a roundabout.
