ANN ARBOR, MI – There are two road construction projects on U.S. 23 in the Ann Arbor area in 2017, one of which already is underway.
The Michigan Department of Transportation on Monday, March 6, released its map of 2017 repair projects.
The map shows one U.S. 23 project in Washtenaw County and one in Monroe County. U.S. 23 will remain open throughout construction.
MDOT is building a “Flex Route“, or a rush-hour lane on the inside shoulder in each direction on U.S. 23 north of Ann Arbor, from M-14 to M-36 in Green Oak Township.
The $92 million project includes widening bridges and on and off ramps and adding roundabouts at North Territorial Road and Eight Mile Road ramp terminals.
MDOT officials say the project should be done in November.
For those driving south of Washtenaw County, there’ll be lane closures on U.S. 23.
MDOT is resurfacing 6.9 miles of the freeway from the Plank Road in Milan to the Macon River in Milan Township in Monroe County. One lane will remain open in each direction.
Work will start in May and will go through October, according to MDOT.
