PROJECT:
The Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT) is investing about $2.3 million to resurface approximately 12 miles of M-69 from River Street in Crystal Falls to M-95 in Sagola and at the M-69/M-95 intersection. Work will include milling and resurfacing, shoulders, concrete patching, and pavement markings. This project includes one five-year and one three-year materials and workmanship pavement warranty.

A map of the project area is available on Mi Drive.

TRAFFIC RESTRICTIONS:
This work requires a detour to complete concrete pavement repairs at the M-69/M-95 intersection. Starting May 7, westbound M-69 will be detoured on Sagola Avenue to Swan Street, then back to M-69. The detour will be in place for approximately three weeks. Traffic on eastbound M-69 will be maintained using traffic shifts.

SAFETY BENEFITS:
This project will result in a smoother driving surface and increased safety for motorists. It will also extend the service life of the pavement.

ESSENTIAL WORK:
This road construction project is an essential function. Transportation workers in the field follow Centers for Disease Control guidelines to limit their risk of getting sick.
