MDOT recently released their 2017 construction map for the state. Zooming in on our county, there are two projects slated for construction in 2017(below):
So both of the MDOT jobs in 2017 will be on US-23. They’re already going full bore on the bridge replacement/shoulder upgrade/ramp extension on US-23 North of Ann Arbor and the work near Milan will begin in May.
What about future work in the County?
MDOT has a site for that as well!
The Five-Year Transportation Program has an interactive map that shows MDOT’s planned work in the county over the next five years.
It looks like MDOT has two more projects slated for the county in the next five years!
The red project is slated for 2019:
Location: 12 bridges on US-23 in Washtenaw County
Type(s) of Work: Repair & Rebuild, Overlay – Epoxy
The tan project is slated for 2018:
Location: M-52 South County Line to Austin Rd
Type of Work: Road, Road Capital Preventive Maintenance
Length: 5.21 Miles
I’m hoping that with the new gas tax we’ll see some new projects come on-line as the funding is put in place. We’ll see!
