Gov. Whitmer and local officials celebrate completion of I-69 construction in Flint

  • Gov. Whitmer and other officials celebrated the completion of 2.5 miles of I-69 construction in Flint.
  • The $100 million project was made possible by Gov. Whitmer’s Rebuilding Michigan bond funding program.
  • The project’s remaining bridge work will be completed by the end of the calendar year.

DAVISON, Mich. ­- As the Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT) marks the completion of a major phase of I-69 construction in Flint, Gov. Gretchen Whitmer and other elected officials joined in the celebration. With work complete on 2.5 miles of I-69 from Fenton Road to M-54 in Flint (only bridge work remains), a ribbon-cutting celebrating the near completion of the $100 million project was in order.

Gov. Whitmer was joined by MDOT staff, members of the contractors and labor unions involved in the project, and several elected officials representing the Genesee County area. MDOT expects to complete all remaining bridge work by the end of the construction season.

Funding for this project is made possible by Gov. Gretchen Whitmer's Rebuilding Michigan program to rebuild the state highways and bridges that are critical to the state's economy and carry the most traffic. The investment strategy is aimed at fixes that result in longer useful lives and improves the condition of the state's infrastructure.

Based on economic modeling, this investment is expected to directly and indirectly support 1,270 jobs.
