(LAPEER COUNTY) -- The Michigan Department of Transportation is seeking public comment on a proposed project on M-24 in Lapeer County. The project, located in the city of Lapeer, includes reconstructing the existing roadway, drainage and water main improvements, and replacing a railroad crossing from south of I-69 to Nepessing Road. Work also includes traffic signal upgrades, making sidewalk improvements compliant with the Americans with Disabilities Act, replacing the culvert on M-24 over Farmers Creek, and constructing a nonmotorized pedestrian tunnel under M-24 north of Farmers Creek.
MDOT is working with the city of Lapeer to acquire two small pieces of right of way to accommodate the improvements and also seeks clearance to grade from Cramton Park, located on the east side of M-24, to the north and south of Farmers Creek. Park activities, features and attributes will not be adversely affected by the proposed work. During work, one lane of alternating traffic will remain open on M-24; traffic at the railroad crossing and near the culvert will be detoured. Public input is being sought to help MDOT recognize and address any public concerns that may result from the proposed roadway improvements in Cramton Park. Comments will be accepted through November 9.
