I-94 over Pipestone Road Interchange


The two I-94 bridges over Pipestone Road in Benton Township, Berrien County, are expected to be improved or replaced in 2019 or later. The Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT) has begun a feasibility study for improving bridge conditions and interchange traffic operations.  The study contains bridge inspection, traffic operations, bridge design, road design, environmental resources, and public involvement components.

Stakeholder input is important for identifying local priorities and key issues to address in future work.  MDOT encourages your involvement in the process of developing illustrative alternatives that will be presented to the public for comments.  MDOT wants to hear from you!  Please share your experiences and observations related to the safe and efficient operation of this interchange.

Stakeholder meetings will be held on May 8, May 22 and June 5, 2013, from 1:00 pm to
3:30 p.m. at Benton Charter Township Hall, 1725 Territorial Road, Benton Harbor.  Stakeholders will be engaged in focus group-style activities.  

MDOT appreciates your participation and looks forward to working with you to complete this important study. Check this Web site for regular updates or contact project manager Kyle Rudlaff at 269-849-2347, or email rudlaffk@michigan.gov to share your comments and concerns.
