Project information:
The Woodward Loop project is a conversion of the roadway from a one-way direction to a two-way direction using the current pavement that was rebuilt in 2007. Planned work includes intersection modifications and improvements, right-of-way acquisitions, drainage improvements, permanent signs, traffic signal replacements/modifications, sidewalk construction, and a nonmotorized path. Pedestrian safety will be increased by the project via the addition of center pedestrian refuge islands.

M-59 (Huron Street) within the Woodward Loop will be rebuilt as part of this project, along with sidewalk work, permanent signs, and pavement markings.

The project is expected to occur in 2025 and 2026.

Public comment:
MDOT is currently seeking public input on how this project can best serve the community. Comments can be submitted via an online comment form, e-mail, phone, and in person at the public meeting. Submit comments by Oct. 4, 2022.
