Project information:
MDOT is conducting a 12-month study to review current and future traffic conditions along the corridor. Study results will help determine the direction of future projects that will help to reduce congestion and improve safety in this busy community.

The I-75/M-83 interchange, as well as the M-83 corridor from I-75 to M-54 (Gera Road), are heavily traveled due to the local shopping destination, area festivals, and the proximity to other heavily traveled interchanges. This feasibility study will provide design alternatives to consider once funding becomes available to address the interchange and the corridor. Projects for this corridor are not programmed in the MDOT Five-Year Transportation Plan but completing this study and reviewing findings will prepare MDOT to move forward quickly once funding becomes available.
