The Michigan Department of Transportation has announced that the rebuilding of US-23 in Ceboygan County will begin on April 12th.

MDOT says it will invest nearly $8 million to rebuild and resurface 7 miles of US-23 from east of Cordwood Road to east of Duncan Avenue in Cheboygan. The concrete curbs will be moved in, making room for a new 6-foot sidewalk on the road's north side.

The project also includes guardrail upgrades and drainage improvements, such as rebuilt ditches along US-23 and Abrahamson Road to improve US-23 drainage to Lake Huron as well as new sidewalks with ramps built to Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) standards, signs, and pavement markings.

During work on the downtown section from Duncan Avenue to Gerow Street, eastbound US-23 traffic will be detoured on M-27, Lincoln Avenue, Lafayette Avenue, and Gerow Street, while westbound traffic will remain on US-23. For much of the other work, a single-lane closure with traffic regulators and, at times, temporary traffic signals will be used.

The estimated completion date is Saturday, October 23rd.
