This three-year, $139 million investment includes rebuilding the freeway with new concrete pavement from Sheldon Road to Newburgh Road, including the ramps at the M-14/I-96/I-275 interchange. Additionally, the work will include maintenance on 17 bridges and the rebuilding of the I-275 Metro Trail along M-14 from Edward Hines Drive to I-275. Bridge work and shoulder widening will be happening throughout the summer, then next year eastbound M-14/I-96 will be rebuilt, followed by the westbound lanes in 2026. 

Roughly 66 percent of this project's funding is made possible by Rebuilding Michigan program to rebuild the state highways and bridges that are critical to the state's economy and carry the most traffic. The investment strategy is aimed at fixes that result in longer useful lives and improves the condition of the state's infrastructure. The other 33 percent of the project's budget is being covered by the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law

Based on economic modeling, this $139 million investment is expected to directly and indirectly support 1,974 jobs.

The project consultant's website (m14reconstruction.org) is expected to be live by mid-June, providing project details and contact information.
