MDOT announced today plans to repair and rebuild 24 miles of I-275 in Wayne County in six phases over three years.
MDOT will host a virtual meeting on Monday, Feb. 22 that details plans regarding a massive I-275 construction project that will span from Will Carleton Road to Six Mile Road.
The project includes ten miles of concrete pavement repairs, 14 miles of rebuilding concrete pavement, asphalt resurfacing of four interchanges, and rebuilding concrete pavement of parts or all of six interchanges.
MDOT said the project also includes improving 65 bridges and a retaining wall, drainage improvements, sign replacements, traffic signal modernizations, intelligent transportation system (ITS) improvements, sidewalk improvements that are compliant with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), and tree replacements.
Additionally, a segment of the Metro Trail will be rebuilt to replace an adjacent retaining wall.
Public input is being sought to help MDOT “recognize and address any concerns that may result from the project,” a statement said.
You can submit public comments by March 9 using MDOT’s online comment form or by e-mailing MDOT Public Involvement Specialist and Hearings Officer Monica Monsma at MonsmaM@Michigan.gov.
