PROJECT:                          
The Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT) will invest $668,402 to resurface 1.6 miles of M-46 from Townline Road to Maple Valley Street in the city of Sandusky. Work includes joint repairs and pavement markings.

MDOT will also use lane closures related to this work to remove the signal at the M-46/Gates Road intersection and install a signed pedestrian crossing. The signal was placed in flash mode in August 2019 while staff reviewed its need and traffic volumes.
