US-23 project between Stony Creek and I-94 in Washtenaw County begins Wednesday

LANSING, Mich. - The Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT) will be closing shoulders of US-23 between Stony Creek and I-94 beginning Wednesday for rebuilding.

The $69 million US-23 and US-12 (Michigan Avenue) improvement project includes new travel lanes on US-12 in both directions beginning just west of the Pittsfield Township police station and extending across US-23 to Carpenter Road, plus redesigned intersections and a new right-turn lane from eastbound US-12 to southbound Platt Road.

The US-23/US-12 interchange, new loop ramps are being added in the northwest and southeast quadrants to eliminate left-turn movements onto US-23. An auxiliary lane is being added in both directions on US-23 between I-94 and US-12, and the acceleration/de-acceleration lanes south of US-12 are being extended.
