ESTIMATED END DATE:
The Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT) is investing approximately $1.7 million to improve sections of M-21, M-37 and M-46 with concrete pavement repairs, joint and crack sealing, and sidewalk ramp upgrades compliant with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).
M-37 sidewalk work (June 18 - July 24) will take place between Lake Eastbrook Boulevard and I-96.
M-21 pavement work (June 18 - 28) will occur between Pettis Avenue and Bennett Street.
M-46 sidewalk work (July 27 - Aug. 21) will take place between Ball Creek Road and Kent Street in Kent City.
M-37 pavement and sidewalk work (Aug. 24 – Nov. 6) will occur between 44th Street and 32nd Street.
Lane closures and traffic shifts will be in effect throughout these projects. Both directions will share one lane via traffic regulators.
This project will provide a smoother ride and extend the service life of the roadway. The sidewalk upgrades will improve safety and pedestrian access.
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.
