MDOT hosting Old M-14 (Ann Arbor Road) project open house May 30 in Wayne County

LIVONIA, Mich. - The Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT) invites the public to attend an open house regarding a new project planned for Old M-14 (Ann Arbor Road) in the city of Livonia. There will be information related to the proposed work, including schedule and traffic impacts. This project is separate from the three-year project that recently began on M-14 between Sheldon and Newburgh roads.

Exhibits will be displayed for Section 106 and Section 4(f) impacts on the National Register of Historic Places (NRHP)-eligible Hines Drive bridge. Additional exhibits will focus on Section 4(f) de minimis impacts for permanent easement right of way for riprap at the Middle Rouge bridge and temporary closure of the recreational resource parking lot on Old M-14 (Ann Arbor Road). Another exhibit will show potential Section 4(f) Historic de minimis impacts on Edward N. Hines Park, whose NRHP eligibility is being reviewed.
