Northbound US-41 will remain on its normal route, while southbound US-41 will be detoured for most of the 2022 construction season. The detour route will begin on southbound M-26 at the Portage Lake Lift Bridge to Sharon Avenue and ending at MacInnes Drive. Local traffic will be maintained along Montezuma Avenue to Shelden Avenue. Temporary traffic signals will be installed at Military Road and Portage Street to replace the existing four-way stops and ensure smoother traffic flow.
Based on economic modeling, this investment is expected to directly and indirectly support 114 jobs.
Long-term benefits include improvements to vehicle and pedestrian safety and operations.
