Weather permitting, Martin Road will be closed at Gratiot at 6 a.m. Monday, Oct. 18, and remain closed until 6 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 31, to allow crews to rebuild the median of the intersection.

Only local traffic will be allowed on Martin Road between Groesbeck Highway (M-97) and Little Mack Ave.

Eastbound Martin Road traffic will be detoured to northbound M-97, then eastbound 12 Mile Road to southbound Little Mack Avenue to get back to eastbound Martin Road.

Westbound Martin Road will be detoured to northbound Little Mack Avenue, then westbound 12 Mile Road to southbound M-97 to get back to westbound Martin Road.

MDOT says the project will result in a smoother driving surface on Gratiot. Sidewalks will also be brought into compliance with the most current Americans with Disabilities Act standards. Both these improvements will result in better ride quality and increased safety for motorists and pedestrians.

Phase one is expected to be completed late this fall, MDOT said, with the entire project projected to be finished by late 2022. For more information about this project, visit https://www.MovingMacomb.org/.
