M-72/M-22 Rebuilding Project, Grand Traverse County

Start: April 2025     End: November 2025

What Is Being Done
MDOT plans to rebuild a 2.2-mile section of M-72 (Grandview Parkway) from Division Street in Traverse City and M-22 (Bay Shore Drive) to Cherry Bend Road in Elmwood Township in 2025. The proposed rebuilding work will remove the concrete and composite (asphalt over concrete) pavements and restore the surface condition and ride quality to good condition; address drainage issues, including curb and gutter, storm sewer, culverts, and outlets; replace sidewalks and nonmotorized paths; make sidewalk ramp upgrades to Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) standards; make operational enhancements at the M-72 (East Traverse Road)/M-22 intersection; upgrade the traffic signal at Cherry Bend Road; and improve access management where possible.

How Traffic Will Be Affected
To be determined.

Safety Benefits
This project will improve safety for all users of the roadway and make crossing more convenient and comfortable for pedestrians and bicyclists.
