MDOT to Host Virtual Public Meeting for Harrisville Project
Wed, 22 Jul 2020 16:49:42 EDT

The Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT) will be holding a virtual meeting to answer questions about and discuss a planned renovation of US-23 North of Harrisville.

MDOT plans to invest roughly $5 million dollars to reconstruct a two mile section of US-23 from south of Washington Street to south of Lakeshore Drive in Harrisville in Alcona County. The project will include new road base and asphalt pavement, drainage improvements, commercial driveway upgrades, slope restoration, and pavement markings.

This work will require a detour for US-23 traffic for much of the project using M-72, Barlow Road and F-41, in agreement with the Village of Lincoln and the Alcona County Road Commission. Access to businesses and residences in the construction zone will be maintained.

Work is tentatively scheduled to begin in early 2021 with the road reopened to traffic by the Fourth of July holiday.

MDOT Alpena Transportation Service Center (TSC) staff will give the presentation and answer questions about the project on Thursday (July 23), between 3 - 4 p.m.
