MDOT seeks feedback on construction plans across region and state


February 2, 2021

The Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT) has released its plan for the 2021-2025 five-year transportation program, highlighting road construction projects expected to take place in northern Michigan and the state. The program “is intended to showcase MDOT’s planned investments in all modes as early as possible in the planning process to support successful program delivery, encourage local coordination and ensure opportunities for meaningful public engagement.”

As part of this public engagement, MDOT invites Michigan residents to explore its five-year plan via an interactive map on its website and to submit comments on upcoming projects. The feedback process will be open until February 25, after which the MDOT will compile and summarize the feedback it receives in an online article to be posted on the MDOT website on March 1.

The five-year transportation plan includes many northern Michigan projects, the highlights of which include:

– The M-37 should be rehabilitated in 2021, in two segments: from Vance Road to Blair Townhall Road and from Blair Townhall Road to M-113.

– US-31 must be rebuilt near Charlevoix in 2021, from Norwood Road North to Barnard Road.

– Several projects are underway for the US-31 heading west from Chum’s Corner and towards Benzonia. These projects include the reconstruction of Sullivan Road to M-137 (2025) and of M-137 to Reynolds Road (2024); and road repairs from Reynolds Road to Goose Road (2021), slightly east of Lincoln Drive to Crystal Drive (2021) and from Crystal Drive to Commercial Street (2021).

– The US-31 N at Traverse City is slated for two reconstruction projects in 2022: one from Division Street to Murchie Bridge and the other from Murchie Bridge to Garfield Avenue.

– The I-75 S is scheduled to undergo “preventative road maintenance” in 2023, from the M-93 to the north of the Crawford County line.

– The US-131 N should be rehabilitated in 2023, from the M-115 north to Mackinaw Trail.

– The reconstruction of the M-22 is scheduled for 2024, from the M-72 to Cherry Bend Road.

The teleprinter has reported on several of these projects in more detail in the past, including the construction of the US-31 N / Grandview Parkway scheduled for 2022 and the M-37 projects, which involve road widening and addition of a roundabout at the intersection of Blair Townhall Road.
