MDOT invites public comment on traffic signal modernization project in Macomb County

May 12, 2020 -- The Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT) is inviting public comment on a planned project to improve safety and operations with upgraded traffic signals at nine locations in Macomb County:

- Eastbound and westbound M-59 (Hall Road) at Van Dyke Avenue
- M-3 (Gratiot Avenue) at Aurora Avenue,
- M-3 (Gratiot Avenue) at Frazho Road,
- M-3 (Gratiot Avenue) at Couzens Avenue,
- M-3 (Gratiot Avenue) at Camden Avenue,
- Eastbound I-696 service drive at Ryan Road,
- Westbound I-696 service drive at Ryan Road,
- M-19 (Main Street) at 32 Mile Road, and
- M-19 (Gratiot Avenue) at 31 Mile Road.

As part of the project, MDOT is working with Macomb County to acquire a small area of permanent easement within the Macomb Orchard Trail property to place a new traffic signal pole at the M-19 (Main Street)/32 Mile Road intersection in Richmond. The functions and attributes of the Macomb Orchard Trail will not be impaired in any way as a result of MDOT's proposed project. Trail traffic would remain open throughout construction. 

Public input is being sought to help MDOT recognize and address any public concerns that may result from acquiring this permanent easement within the Macomb Orchard Trail property. MDOT is encouraging public comments on the proposal through June 12 to be sent to:
