CLOSEST CITY:
Battle Creek

START DATE:
Monday, Aug. 9, 2021

PROJECT:
The Michigan Department of Transportation will be chip sealing and fog sealing 13.4 miles of M-311 from M-60 to M-96 (Michigan Avenue).

SAFETY BENEFITS:
This project will extend the life of the roadway and improve safety for motorists. Chip sealing is a surface treatment that fills cracks and helps prevent water from penetrating the road surface, provides an anti-glare surface during wet weather and an increased reflective surface for night driving, increases friction for wet and winter weather, and is done at a fraction of the cost of traditional pavement overlays.

TRAFFIC RESTRICTIONS:
Single-lane closures with a traffic regulator.
