at Holly Road starts June 19

           

ESTIMATED STARTING DATE:            
Monday, June 19, 2017                

ESTIMATED COMPLETION DATE:

PROJECT:                          

The Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT) will invest $3.1 million to reconstruct the northbound I-75 ramps at the Holly Road interchange. Work includes reconstructing the existing ramps and adding a second northbound I-75 entrance ramp.

Bay Region Design Engineer Susan Phillips shares more on this project on MDOT’s YouTube channel: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ysXAcpWHAvI.

TRAFFIC RESTRICTIONS:                     

Beginning June 19, one lane will be closed on northbound I-75 near Holly Road to accommodate staging for the project. Following the July 4 holiday, the northbound I-75 exit ramp (Exit 108) to Holly Road will be closed to traffic and detoured via Dixie Highway (Saginaw Street/Exit 106) and Baldwin Road back to Holly Road

Throughout the project, Holly Road traffic will be maintained with shoulder and single-lane closures.

SAFETY BENEFITS:
This project will mitigate congestion on Holly Road by allowing both directions of traffic to enter northbound I-75 without requiring left-hand turns. This will reduce the risk of crashes and improve traffic flow, primarily during peak commute hours.
