Project background:
MDOT is replacing the M-50 (Cooper Street) bridge over the Grand River and installing a new water main along Cooper Street from Washington Avenue to Michigan Avenue. The project includes rebuilding the deck on the I-94 Business Route (Louis Glick Highway) bridge over the Grand River and extending a nonmotorized path along the west side of the new Cooper Street bridge over the Grand River in the city of Jackson.

Public comment:
Public input is being sought to help MDOT recognize and address any public concerns that may result from permanent right of way for roadway use from a city park, temporary city park property use for construction activities, the temporary closure of the Grand River to recreational use during bridge work, and a pedestrian trail detour during work per a proposed recreational de minimis impact finding under Section 4(f) of the U.S. Department of Transportation Act of 1966. Public comment can be submitted via an online comment form, e-mail, and in person at the public meeting. Provide your comments by June 20, 2023.
