Road Bridge And Traffic Projects In Macomb Co Announced

Mt. Clemens, MI - The Macomb County Department of Roads (MCDR) is preparing for road, bridge and traffic improvements scheduled for 2023 and conducting preliminary planning for future road work by sending projects for funding consideration to the Macomb County Board of Commissioners, which were for formally approved at the full board meeting on July 20, 2023.

“As part of our continuing effort to improve Macomb County’s road, bridge and transportation network, there is significant work taking place this construction season,” said Macomb County Executive Mark A. Hackel. “Between work scheduled for this year and planning and exploring funding for future road improvement projects, I will continue to emphasize there isn’t a road or bridge we can’t fix if we have adequate funding and support from our local, state and federal lawmakers.”

There is more than $163 million in road, bridge, and traffic improvements planned throughout Macomb County this year. MCDR is also exploring the reconstruction of Metropolitan Parkway between Mound Road and Van Dyke Avenue by conducting preliminary planning and engineering work necessary to apply for federal grand funding.

“These projects are part of the Department of Roads strategic approach to provide comprehensive transportation infrastructure improvements throughout Macomb County,” said MCDR Director Bryan Santo. “From local roads to major corridors, we are committed to improving our road and bridge system while delivering the greatest value to residents, drivers and the community.”

The following MCDR projects were approved by the Board of Commissioners:
