MDOT begins $2.3 million resurfacing project on M-57 in Genesee County on July 15, finish expected by September

Genesee County, Michigan – By late September, Genesee County residents should expect improved road safety and easier commutes when the Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT) plans to finish the significant resurfacing project on M-57. Starting on July 15, 2024, the project includes the renovation of a 9.8-mile section from M-54 to M-15 covering areas near Clio and Otisville.

With an investment of around $2.3 million, the project seeks to improve one of the main roads in the county. MDOT claims that the work will consist in new pavement markings, resurfacing, and hot-mix asphalt cold milling. This all-encompassing strategy is meant to not only prolong the road’s life but also guarantee that it satisfies current safety and operational standards.

Motorists should plan delays during the resurfacing phase. To minimize disturbance, MDOT has said that flagging operations will control midday single-lane closures. Drivers should, however, give their travels more time or, if at all feasible, choose other routes.

Notable is also this project’s economic influence. MDOT’s economic modeling indicates that the resurfacing should sustain 28 employment both directly and indirectly. This increase would help the local economy by creating jobs in allied industries including building and associated sectors.
