The Innovate Mound project will reconstruct nine miles of Mound Road from I-696 north to M-59 in Macomb County. Additionally, the section from 17 Mile to M-59 will be widened to add a fourth lane in each direction. The initiative was started by Macomb County, the City of Sterling Heights, and the City of Warren in 2016 to develop a plan for renovating the more than 50-year-old, deteriorating roadway. With the support of many local businesses and government officials, the partners were able to secure a federal grant in 2018 to reconstruct the road. Macomb County is leading the Innovate Mound project in partnership with the two municipalities and in coordination with the Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT), the Southeast Michigan Council of Governments (SEMCOG), and the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA).
In 2019, Macomb County hired the infrastructure design firm HNTB to manage the entire project. HNTB will oversee assessment, planning, and reconstruction for the nine-mile-long project. Construction is anticipated to begin in the summer of 2021 and is projected to be completed in 2024.
