The proposed work will include rebuilding and widening the roadway to improve pavement condition and provide safety improvements with the addition of center left-turn lanes, widened paved shoulders, and rumble strips. Intersection improvements are also being evaluated, including at South Long Lake Road/J. Maddy Parkway. Alternatives at this location include a traffic signal modernization with the addition of left-turn arrows or a roundabout.

MDOT has created a project website to share updates on the project’s design.
