Roundabout and resurfacing project in Lenawee County begins Monday

LANSING, Mich. - The Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT) is investing $40 million to complete drainage improvements, widen the shoulder, and resurface approximately 14 miles of US-223 and US-127 from US-12 to Onsted Highway and US-127 to Junction Road. The project will also reconstruct and modernize the interchange of US-223 and US-127 into a roundabout.

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 improve the condition of the state's infrastructure.

Completion date:

Overall project completion date:
October 2024

Traffic restrictions:
This work will require installing temporary pavement and shifting traffic during construction.  An alternate traffic pattern will be used during construction operations. Single-lane closures with flag control will be used on US-223 and US-127 during work operations outside of the roundabout. 

Jobs numbers:
Based on economic modeling, this investment is expected to directly and indirectly support nearly 484 jobs.

Safety benefit:
This work will provide drivers with a smoother, safer driving surface with fresh pavement markings. This roundabout will provide improved access, and increased safety for motorists. MDOT has a video on its YouTube channel showing how to properly drive through a roundabout. Closing lanes during this type of work is necessary to provide the safest work area possible for crews and motorists.
