I-69 rebuilding project restarts Monday for the final year

MARSHALL, Mich. – Monday marks the beginning of the final year of the Michigan Department of Transportation’s (MDOT) three-year, $210 million project to rebuild I-69 between Island Highway in Charlotte, Eaton County, and I-94 in Marshall, Calhoun County.

Work for this year starts Monday, Feb. 27, and includes rebuilding southbound I-69 from I-94 to north of Ainger Road; rebuilding the interchange ramps at N Drive, M-78, and Ainger Road; rebuilding the remainder of the I-69/I-94 interchange; and preventative maintenance work on various bridges throughout.

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.
