US-23 Flex Route work to close lanes through August 3rd

Starting Friday night, the Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT) will begin nightly and weekend lane closures on northbound and southbound US-23 between Silver Lake Road and I-96.

One lane of northbound traffic will be closed to complete pipe crossing across the highway beginning at 9 p.m. and lasting through 6 a.m. Monday. Then the closure will take place from 9 p.m. – 6 a.m. nightly Monday through Thursday, and is expected to be concluded by 6 a.m., Thursday, August 3rd.

In addition, during that closure, the northbound US-23 ramp to eastbound I-96 will be closed and detoured via westbound I-96 and Spencer Road to eastbound I-96, while the northbound US-23 ramps to and from Lee Road will be closed and detoured via southbound US-23, Fieldcrest Drive, and Silver Lake Road to northbound US-23, while northbound US-23 traffic heading for Lee Road will be detoured via the Silver Lake Road exit to Fieldcrest Drive/Old US-23 to Lee Road.

Lee Road will be also closed at US-23 and detoured via southbound US-23 and Fieldcrest Drive/Old US-23 back to Lee Road 9 p.m. until 6 a.m. nightly Monday-Friday.

Motorists are advised to seek alternate routes

This work is part of MDOT’s ongoing $162 million investment to extend the US-23 Flex Route from north of 8 Mile Road to I-96. The project consists of less than 7.5 miles of hot-mix asphalt rebuilding and improvements, shoulder widening, interchange reconfigurations, bridge replacement, and improvements at nine structures. The US-23 Flex Route Phase 2 extension focuses on traffic safety, operations, infrastructure condition, and the directional peak period congestion along the US-23 corridor.   

MDOT built the first Flex Route on US-23 between M-14 and 8 Mile Road in 2016 and 2017. That work involved installing an active traffic management (ATM) lane with other safety improvements, as well as operational improvements and addressing condition needs.
