M-21 & M-71 Road Projects

MDOT will have 3 projects starting up soon in Shiawassee County and the current one on M-21 at Durand Road.

An update for the work at Durand Road and the culvert replacement.  The contractor is still working on the sheeting for the new culvert.  They have had some issues with items buried in the area and its taking longer to get the sheeting in than originally anticipated.  We are looking at the end of October, weather permitting to have this opened back up, if we don’t have other items come up.

FOR THE NEW PROJECTS:

Starting the week of September 19th we will be working on M-21 between Delaney and Chestnut.  This will require traffic to be controlled by a flagging operation while they are working so just one direction at a time will be going through.  This work is a mill and resurface and should be finished by the end of the month or early October if everything goes well.

Also starting the week of the 19th will be a section on M-71 between Washington and Gould Street.  Similar type of work that we are doing on M-21 mill and resurface.  This section will have more sidewalk ramps that will be worked on to meet ADA requirements.  Most of this section is a 4 lane section so we should only have a single lane closure in each direction possibly shifting traffic over if additional room is needed.  This work will finish up near the middle to end of October.  With all the driveways and side streets in this area we may need to block them off temporarily as we mill or pave through an area.

The last project will be on M-21 from Gould to State.  Similar to the other projects mill and resurface.  This project will start near the end of September and should be completed by the end of October.  Traffic control will be similar to M-71 but at times we will need to also take the center left turn lane leaving traffic to only use the outside lanes.  With all the driveways and side streets in this area we may need to block them off temporarily as we mill or pave through an area.

You can always check MiDrive site for information about the lane closures.  We have included a link below for M-21 near Delaney the other locations will be added shortly.
