April 4, 2007 - - The Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT) will oversee improvements to five miles of I-69 between Peacock Road in Clinton County, east to Shaftsburg Road in Shiawassee County. In addition, ramp improvements will take place at the Woodbury Road/I-69 interchange (Exit 98) and at the Woodbury Road rest area along westbound I-69.
Improvements include pavement restoration and shoulder upgrading along the median, or left lane, of I-69, and a concrete inlay on the outside, or right lane, of I-69.
One lane of traffic will be maintained in each direction on I-69. Lane closures will be in place around-the-clock, seven days a week until construction is completed. During ramp work, ramp traffic will be detoured. The contractor is restricted to work on only one ramp at a time in order to reduce the inconvenience to motorists. And at the rest area, the facility will be closed for a portion of the summer to accommodate repairs.
All work is expected to be completed by November 2007.
This $6.7 million project continues a commitment by MDOT and the Granholm administration to create jobs, improve quality of life, and provide the highest quality transportation services for Michigan residents and businesses.
For up- to-date information on this project, there is an updated list of statewide lane closures accessible on the MDOT Web site at www.michigan.gov/laneclosures
