Livingston County residents, businesses, commuters, and community stakeholders are encouraged to attend a public meeting about the next phase of MDOT’s US-23 Flex Route project.

The Michigan Department of Transportation is hosting the meeting on the proposed building and maintenance of traffic for phase 2 of the project.

The existing US-23 Flex Lane between Warren Road and M-36 (9 Mile Road) is a median shoulder lane that is activated during peak travel times to reduce congestion along the freeway.

Through phase 2, MDOT will extend the US-23 Flex Lane north to tie into the I-96 interchange. The northbound US-23 Flex Lane will end just north of the Lee Road off-ramp and south of the Lee Road bridge. The Flex Lane will transition into an exit-only lane to westbound I-96.

The meeting will take place on Wednesday, November 30th from 5 to 8pm at the Green Oak Township Hall building located at 1001 Silver Lake Road. MDOT representatives will be available for questions and answers.
