MDOT plans to invest roughly $12 million to rebuild 2.2 miles of I-75 BL (South Otsego Avenue) between the south I-75 exit in Gaylord and Wisconsin Avenue/Grandview Boulevard. The project will include rebuilding the asphalt roadway, a new roundabout at McCoy Road, reduced shoulder widths, nonmotorized pathways, and streetscape improvements. 

This work will require a combination of lane closures and shifts, in addition to local road closures. Work is tentatively scheduled to begin in spring 2024 and will continue into fall 2024.  

During the project, updates will be posted on Mi Drive, shared on social media and in news releases, and posted on portable message signs.
