VILLAGE OF CLARKSTON, Mich. ­– The Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT) is investing approximately $160 million to resurface and repair 15 miles of I-75 from M-15 (Ortonville Road) to the Oakland/Genesee County line.

The multi-year project includes three years of construction and will include milling and resurfacing three lanes of I-75 in both directions, reconstruction of shoulders, culvert replacement, signs and guardrail replacement, and significant improvements on 11 bridges. The bridge work includes deck patching, overlays and some full deck replacements, painting, substructure repairs and superstructure repairs.

Beginning in May 2023 through late fall – temporary crossovers will be constructed along with bridge work and pavement repairs on northbound and southbound I-75 between M-15 and the Genesee County line.

2024 – milling and resurfacing of northbound I-75 from M-15 to the county line. There will be two lanes of northbound and southbound traffic sharing the existing southbound roadway.

2025 – milling and resurfacing of southbound I-75 from the Genesee County line to M-15. Traffic will share the existing northbound roadway.

2026 – removal of the temporary crossovers and remaining miscellaneous work.

Based on economic modeling, this investment is expected to directly and indirectly support 1,936 jobs.
