US-23 Flex Route Project

March 21, 2017 Update:

  • Beginning at 9 pm on Thursday, March 23rd through 7 am on Friday, March 24th: Single lane closure on NB US-23 at N. Territorial to install an ITS Gantry (truss).

  • Between 1 am and 4 am on Friday, March 24th: 15 minute intermittent freeway closure on NB US-23 at N. Territorial to install an ITS Gantry (truss).

  • Beginning at 9 pm on Thursday, March 23rd through 7 am Friday, March 24th: Single lane closure on NB US-23 from Barker Rd to 8 Mile Rd for beam setting.

  • Beginning at 8 pm on Monday, March 27th through 7 am on Tuesday, March 28th: Single lane closure on NB US-23 from Barker to 8 Mile Rd for beam setting.


Starting in 2016, road and bridge improvements will begin along US-23 in Washtenaw and Livingston counties between M-14 and Silver Lake Road. As part of this $92 million investment, MDOT will implement the Flex Route traffic management system along the highway between M-14 and M-36. 

Early stages of construction include shoulder repairs in both directions, temporary ramp extensions, temporary widening of the Barker Road and the Great Lakes Central Railroad bridges, median drainage work, and minor structure work at 6 Mile, 8 Mile and N. Territorial roads.

Starting Monday, Nov. 7, there will be overnight single-lane closures on northbound US-23 between M-14 and Silver Lake Road. Lane closures will occur between 8 p.m. and 7 a.m. each night to accommodate the shoulder repair and ramp extension work. Following this work, a traffic shift will be installed in each direction to accommodate the temporary bridge widening and median work. This stage of the project is expected to take until mid- to late November.

Once construction begins, work is expected to continue through the winter and into 2017. Additional lane closure and detour notices will be provided as the project progresses. The goal is to complete the project by the end of 2017.
