The Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT) will invest $1.2 million on intersection and pedestrian safety improvements on the eastbound I-696 service drive (10 Mile Road) at the M-1 (Woodward Avenue) service drive, along with M-1 at Washington Avenue, and Washington Avenue over M-1.


The project includes cold milling and resurfacing on the eastbound I-696 service drive, repairing curbs and gutters, drainage structure repairs, approach work, upgrading sidewalk ramps to meet Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) standards, widening the sidewalk on the Washington Avenue bridge over M-1, M-1 sidewalk work at Washington Avenue, and M-1 service drive work at the I-696 service drive.

There will be single-lane closures on the northbound and southbound M-1 service drives, and lane closures on the eastbound I-696 service drive (10 Mile Road) and Washington Avenue. There will be multiple and frequent changes to lane closures in these areas. Drivers are advised to pay attention to the portable message signs on each roadway advising of the changes.



Safety will be improved for drivers and pedestrians with a smoother riding surface on the eastbound I-696 service drive (10 Mile Road) and operational changes on M-1 and Washington Avenue.
