Public Meeting to Discuss Construction on US 23
November 9th from 4:00-7:00 pm
Whitmore Lake High School
As part of this $92 million investment on US-23, MDOT will implement the Flex Route traffic management system along the highway, between M-14 and M-36. This new system uses innovative technology to manage peak-hour congestion and improve safety along the corridor through the use of expanded Intelligent Transportation System (ITS) technology. ITS includes a combination of electronic, telecommunication and information technology MDOT uses to improve safety and travel times on the transportation system.
In addition to making operational and safety improvements along US-23, the project includes road repair, bridge replacement, ramp upgrades, and median shoulder widening to accommodate the Flex Route system.
Construction could begin as early as November of this year. More information, including videos showing how the Flex Route system works, can be found at: www.flexroute23.com.
