Michigan DOT Gives Update on I-69 Rebuilding Michigan Project in Eaton and Calhoun Counties

CHARLOTTE, MI — The Michigan Department of Transportation recently gave an update on the three-year Rebuilding Michigan project to rebuild 25 miles of I-69 in Calhoun and Eaton counties.

Work this year includes rebuilding northbound and southbound I-69 from Ainger Road in Olivet to Island Highway in Charlotte, Eaton County. Several smaller projects that would have taken a decade to complete were combined into one larger project under Gov. Gretchen Whitmer's Rebuilding Michigan program. Under that program, the one larger project will be completed in three years, increasing efficiencies and reducing costs for taxpayers and delays for motorists.

Work this year is anticipated to be completed for the season by November 15. Throughout the project, one lane of I-69 will be open in each direction using crossovers, and access to interchange ramps will be maintained except when short-duration closures are required for rebuilding work. County road closures over I-69 will be required to accommodate bridge repairs.

This is the first year of a three-year, $210-million investment to rebuild I-69 in Calhoun and Eaton counties. The entire project includes rebuilding 25 miles of I-69 and six interchanges, replacing the 15 Mile Road bridge over I-94, repairing 26 bridges, and making drainage and safety improvements from south of I-94 in Marshall, Calhoun County, to Island Highway in Charlotte, Eaton County. In addition, crews will repave the Turkeyville Rest Area and carpool lot, as well as the Potterville Rest Area. The overall project is expected to be finished in November 2023.
