The Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT) invites the public to participate in an online comment period for a proposed four- to three-lane conversion on M-43 (Grand River Avenue) in Williamston.

Interested residents, community stakeholders, and local businesses are invited to provide their input Monday, Nov. 20 - Wednesday, Dec. 13th via mail or submitted through MDOT’s online comment form.

A four to three-lane conversion, also known as a road diet, is proposed on M-43 (Grand River Avenue) in downtown Williamston from West Zimmer Road to Block Street, and one block north and south of M-43 on Putnam Street.

Road diets, according to MDOT, are known to improve mobility, safety, and access for all road users.
