The Michigan Department of Transportation will be resurfacing 3.7 miles of US-12 and making improvements to two Grand Elk Railroad crossings. The $972,000 investment includes milling and resurfacing, sidewalk ramp upgrades, and new pavement markings on US-12 from the Grand Elk Railroad to Fairview Drive. Work also will include improvements to the US-12 and US-131 Grand Elk Railroad crossings.
This project will improve safety and ride quality for motorists, increase safety and accessibility for pedestrians, and extend the life of the roadway.
There will be single-lane closures on US-12 with traffic regulators throughout the project.
Railroad crossing work will require short-term total closures and posted detours.
