US-23 Project Update / Public Meeting

On August 14, 2014, MDOT will host a public meeting to discuss findings from its Environmental Assessment of its US-23 Active Traffic Management Project in Washtenaw and Livingston Counties.

MDOT moved forward with the Environmental Assessment based on input from December 2013 public meeting. The alternatives under study include replacing and upgrading pavement, median shoulders, bridges, and entrance and exit ramps. MDOT is also evaluating the effects of using upgraded shoulders, permanent message boards, cameras and other active traffic management system technology to reduce congestion, improve safety, manage incidents and better accommodate through-traffic during peak hours.

Study Update Meeting: Thursday, Aug. 14, 2014 4 to 6:30 p.m. (stop by anytime);

There will be brief presentations at 4 and 5:30 p.m.,

Location: Northfield Township Hall, 8350 Main St., Ste. A, Whitmore Lake
