Intermittent overnight I-475 closures scheduled to begin April 15

DAVISON, Mich. - The Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT) is investing approximately $141 million to rebuild more than 3 miles of I-475 from the Flint River to Carpenter Road in Flint. As a part of this project, southbound I-475 will be closed intermittently while crews remove overhead signs starting late on April 15 and continuing into the early morning hours on April 16.

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 improves the condition of the state's infrastructure.
