ESTIMATED COMPLETION DATE:
The Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT) will invest $6.4 million to resurface nearly 9.2 miles of M-53 from Deanville Road to the south city limit of Marlette. Work includes joint repairs, drainage improvements, guardrail, and sign upgrades.
Traffic will be maintained with single-lane closures and traffic regulators during working hours. The M-53/M-90 (Burnside Road) intersection will operate as a four-way stop for up to two weeks, with only one through-lane open in each direction. That work is expected to occur in May and will be announced in advance of its start.
This work will improve the driving surface and extend the life of the roadway.
