This $50 million investment involves resurfacing approximately 5 miles of M-102 (8 Mile Road) between M-1 (Woodward Avenue) and M-53 (Van Dyke Avenue) through the communities of Detroit, Ferndale, Hazel Park, and Warren.

Based on economic modeling, this project is expected to directly and indirectly support 710 jobs.
