ABC 57

MICHIGAN - MDOT will start resurfacing more than 39 miles of M-40, M-43, US-12, and I-196 in Berrien and Van Buren Counties on Wednesday, May 29, as part of a $3.8 million investment.

The resurfacing work includes crack filling, surface sealing, and pavement markings.

“The investments in the infrastructure along the Lakeshore will improve the conditions of our roads, and this project will also support about 46 jobs in the area during construction,” said state Representative Joey Andrews (D-St. Joseph). “This is money well spent — Michigan’s priorities of replacing bridges and fixing the roads are all healthy signs of how we’re bringing hometowns back to prosperity.”

MDOT estimates the end date to be August 30.

There will be single-lane closures under flag control.

This project is part of a series of Michigan roadwork projects with the goal of repairing and preserving highway pavement, extending its service life, and improving safety for motorists.
