MDOT asks for public input on I-94 rebuilding project

BERRIEN COUNTY, Mich. –  The Michigan Department of Transportation is asking for the public’s input on a planned three-year project to rebuild part of I-94 in Berrien County.

MDOT has produced a YouTube video explaining the project, which will rebuild 11 miles of I-94.

MDOT is asking the public to submit any comments or concerns with the planned project through an online comment form or through email, postal mail, or by phone.

The project focuses on the area west of the interchange with I-94 Business Loop (locally known as Red Arrow Highway) to Britain Avenue.

Work also includes replacing four bridges and improving seven additional bridges.

The rebuild is estimated to cost more than $153 million. The project is funded by the Rebuilding Michigan bonding program.

Maintenance work to prepare for the main project will occur in 2022, while major work activities are expected to begin in 2023 and end in 2024.
