Construction Advisory - Latson Road between M-59 and Golf Club Road
Posted: May 25, 2018
The following project is expected to be underway soon.  As always, weather adversities, changes in contractor’s schedules, or other factors could alter the timing described in this advisory.  The Livingston County Road Commission will issue revised advisories for those projects with high traffic impacts


Oceola Township


Latson Road between M-59 and Golf Club Road

Starting Date:

Friday June 1, 2018, 8:00 PM

Completion Date:

Sunday, June 3, 2018, 6:00 AM

Project Purpose:

Pavement rehabilitation

Nature of Work:

Mill existing surface and replace with 2 new lifts of hot mix asphalt, new aggregate shoulders

Traffic Impact:

Major traffic impact due to high traffic volumes on Latson Road.  Work will be performed during evening and nighttime hours to reduce long delays and to expedite construction.

In order to protect workers on the ground and motorists in the work zone, traffic during the construction hours will be only allowed to travel southbound from M-59 and from the side streets and businesses along Latson Road.  This provides more room for equipment, workers, and private vehicles during construction.  Contractor personnel will be on site to direct traffic.

The traffic flow will be directed southbound only from M-59 to Golf Club Road.  All northbound traffic will need to use a detour of either Gulley Road (east of Latson Road) or Eager Road (west of Latson Road). 

Extended delays are expected during the beginning of construction each night and at the end of work the following morning.  Motorists are encouraged to find alternate routes.

Unrelated construction is also being performed by MHOG at the area of Earl Lake Road and Golf Club Road to repair 1,000 feet of sanitary sewer, also at night.  Traffic will be down to one lane in that area and controlled by flaggers.

I-96 Construction 2018 - Updated 5/25/18
Updated: Friday, May 25, 2018
The MDOT Lansing TSC has an update for construction work being done this summer on I-96 between M-52 and M-59.

The next weekend day and night lane closure for EB I-96  is scheduled to start Friday June 1st at 9 PM and remain closed until the following Monday at 5 AM. During this time the Fowlerville Rd entrance ramp to EB I-96 will be closed.

They anticipate the final weekend day and night lane closure for EB I-96 will be scheduled to start Friday June 8th at 9 PM and remain closed until the following Monday at 5 AM. During this time the Fowlerville Rd entrance ramps to EB I-96 will be closed and detoured as shown on the attached detour plans.

Just as a reminder to everyone, it is anticipated that the weekend day and night lane closures will create a significant backup for EB travelers. It is recommended to seek an alternate route when traveling EB between Williamston and Howell.

The Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT) is investing about $14 million to resurface 11 miles of I-96 from M-52 to M-59 in Ingham and Livingston counties.

Daily work will occur overnight from 9 p.m. to 5 a.m. From April 8 through July 4, major work will occur day and night on four select weekends in order to avoid holidays and major events. During work hours, there will be single-lane closures in one direction at a time. Motorists are advised to take alternate routes.
