Brighton Road Construction to Start
Posted: Wednesday, July 13, 2016
Brighton Road between Chilson Road and Bauer Road will be under construction beginning July 18th. There are four areas where the repair methods will require heavier construction methods that will completely close the road. Three of these deep repairs are west of Oak Pointe Drive and the fourth is just west of Brookwood Meadows Drive/Walnut Hills Drive. These repairs will take place between July 19 and August 19. Message boards and directional signs will aid motorists during these phases. The official detour route is divided into several phases but all phases will require temporary use of gravel roads. These routes include Conrad and Challis Road as well as Crooked Lake Road. Motorists from beyond the project limits may want to use Winans Lake Road or I-96 via Latson Road as an alternate route during this 60 day long project.

I-96 / US-23 Interchange Update
Updated: Thursday, March 31, 2016
Construction at the I-96/US-23 interchange has resumed. MDOT is making safety and operational improvements to the I-96/US-23 interchange in Livingston County. In 2015, new through-lanes were constructed on I-96 between the current eastbound and westbound lanes, and three new bridges were built over northbound and southbound US-23 and over Old US-23. In addition, the existing lanes of I-96 were changed to collector-distributor (CD) lanes. In 2016, work continues on rebuilding the existing six bridges over US-23 and Old US-23 that are now the CD lanes.
