A Local and Governmental Advisory Committee Kickoff Meeting was held on January 28, 2020 to discuss the project and the current status of the pre-construction phase.
What do you think?
The benefit of using the pre-construction time wisely will be a project that benefits both residents and businesses and efficiently utilizes the limited transportation funding.

During these meetings the team is also collecting input from the community to ensure that all needs are considered during the planning and design of the project.
Q: Why is this project important to the community’s future?
A: Macomb County is our home. It’s where we live, work, and enjoy everything our community has to offer. Rebuilding this critical corridor will enhance our region, strengthen our economic future and provide the infrastructure necessary for Macomb County to continue to connect, grow and thrive.
