Project information: 
MDOT will invest $300 million to rebuild I-475 from Bristol Road to Carpenter Road, with some work possibly starting as early as spring 2024. MDOT is currently gathering public input regarding all aspects of vehicular, nonmotorized, and transit transportation needs in the project area. 

Funding for this project is made possible by Gov.

The investment strategy is aimed at fixes that result in longer useful lives and improves the condition of the state's infrastructure.
