A two-year, $60 million project to reconstruct nearly 4-miles of M-59 is slated to begin in March, according to MLive Detroit.
The Michigan Department of Transportation said in a news release the two-year project will take place between this spring and October 2017, and then again between spring and October 2018.
Work will occur from M-53 to west of Garfield Road, in which it will affect the communities of Sterling Heights, Utica, and Clinton, Macomb and Shelby townships, MDOT reports.
"During the first year, work will include replacing all concrete with new asphalt, improving drainage, upgrading ramps and sidewalks to be compliant with the Americans with Disabilities Act, and new sidewalk will be added to fill in the missing gaps along M-59," MDOT said in the release. "New modern traffic signals, sign replacement, enhanced landscaping, and other aesthetic improvements are planned as well. During the second year, work will continue, along with a fourth lane added to both sides of M-59 between Garfield and Romeo Plank roads."
Three lanes in each direction will remain open daily 6 a.m. to 9 p.m. from east of M-53 and Romeo Plank Road, except for the M-59 bridge over M-53. Work will take place in the area "day and night," MDOT says.
A website will provide construction and traffic updates through the duration of the reconstruction project. There is a percentage meter that shows how far along the work is at the bottom of the homepage.
