Fast facts:

  • MDOT is rebuilding 5 miles of I-69 between I-96 and Airport Road.

  • These improvements will provide increased safety and mobility in this area of I-69, which is a significant state, national, and international trade corridor.

LANSING, Mich. ­- On Monday, Nov. 7, the Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT) will reopen one lane of westbound I-69 in Clinton and Eaton counties, along with the ramp to westbound I-96 in Eaton County. Work will continue until all lanes are open for seasonal suspension.

The $73 million investment to rebuild I-69 from Airport Road to the I-96/I-69 interchange includes rebuilding more than 5 miles of I-69, rebuilding the interchanges at Francis and Airport roads, and performing preventive maintenance and repairs on 13 bridges. Based on economic modeling, this investment is expected to directly and indirectly support 927 jobs.

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.
