By David Fleet
Groveland Twp. — Beginning this month and over the next four years, 15 miles of I-75 between M-15 (Ortonville Road) and the Oakland/Genesee county line will undergo major renovations.
The Michigan Department of Transportation is investing approximately $160 million to resurface I-75, repairing 11 bridges, drainage improvements, culvert replacements, signing and guardrail.
At 7 a.m., May 18, Belford, Davisburg, and Holcomb roads will all be closed over I-75 for bridge repairs. The project is expected to be completed in July. During this time I-75 will remain open under these roads, however lane closure will be posted under the bridges.
Beginning May 30, work will begin on I-75 from M-15 (Ortonville Road) to the Oakland County line with Genesee County. Day-time and night time work will be announced. MDOT spokesperson Diane Cross said two lanes will remain open, unless absolutely necessary, for isolated work.
