The Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT) invites the public to attend a public meeting at the Flint Farmers Market discussing upcoming I-475 corridor improvements in Genesee County.
Funding for this project is made possible by Gov. Gretchen Whitmer's Rebuilding Michigan program to rebuild the state highways and bridges that are critical to the state's economy and carry the most traffic. The investment strategy is aimed at fixes that result in longer useful lives and improves the condition of the state's infrastructure.
During this public meeting, a brief presentation will be shared, including an overview of recent changes to accommodate a community-focused design planning approach. Presentations will occur at 5 and 6 p.m. The remainder of the time will be available for questions and to discuss details with project staff.
