Temporary widening, crossover construction on I-75 in Cheboygan County starts July 11

GAYLORD, Mich. - The Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT) will begin preparation work for a two-year, $52 million investment in 2023 and 2024 to rebuild 9 miles of I-75 from Levering Road to US-31 in Cheboygan County. Work this season will include widening the paved shoulder of southbound I-75 and building three crossovers to help maintain traffic during the rebuilding portion of the project.

The southern half of the project is scheduled to be built in 2023 while the northern half is scheduled for 2024. The project includes removing the 1950s-era concrete roadway, which has been susceptible to joint deterioration, particularly during extreme summer temperatures.
