MDOT will invest $25.7 million to resurface 6.4 miles of US-23 and the US-23 connector, including maintenance to 13 bridges along I-75 and the US-23 connector, and the addition of a roundabout at the US-23 connector and M-13 interchange. The addition of the roundabout allows MDOT to address ramp congestion and safety for drivers accessing the US-23 connector from M-13 and eliminates an overpass in need of replacement.
As part of Gov. Whitmer's Rebuilding Michigan program, the project limits were extended, allowing MDOT to improve nearly 3 additional miles of US-23 from the connector to Grove Street in the city of Standish. This pavement is currently rated in poor condition; resurfacing will extend the life of the roadway.
Public input is being sought to help MDOT recognize and address any concerns that may result from the project. Please provide concerns/comments by Feb. 11, 2021. Provide your comments and questions using the online comment form or by mail, e-mail or phone to MDOT Public Involvement Specialist and Hearings Officer Monica Monsma at MonsmaM@Michigan.gov or:
