Resurfacing project begins on I-75 from M-15 (Ortonville Road) to Oakland/Genesee county line

VILLAGE OF CLARKSTON, Mich. ­– The Michigan Department of Transportation is investing approximately $160 million to resurface and repair I-75 from M-15 (Ortonville Road) to the Oakland/Genesee county line. This project includes resurfacing I-75, repairing 11 bridges, drainage improvements, culvert replacements, signs, and guardrail. Various work will be performed in different locations with different schedules throughout the 15 miles over four years.

Beginning 7 a.m. Monday, May 22, Belford Road, Davisburg Road, and Holcomb Road will all be closed over I-75 for bridge repairs through late July. I-75 will remain open under these roads although there may be lane closures, as needed, for the bridge work above.

Beginning Tuesday, May 30, through late fall, temporary crossovers will be built along with bridge work and pavement repairs on northbound and southbound I-75 between M-15 (Ortonville Road) to the county line. The schedule for daytime and nighttime work will be announced closer to the start date. The current plan is to leave two lanes open, unless absolutely necessary for isolated work.

In 2024, work will include milling and resurfacing 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.

In 2025, milling and resurfacing will occur on southbound I-75 from the county line to M-15. Traffic will share the existing northbound roadway.

In 2026, work will include removal of the temporary crossovers and remaining miscellaneous activity.

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.

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