NEWS – Public open house to discuss M-29 corridor study in St. Clair May 2

The Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT) will hold a public open house to discuss various proposed traffic improvements along M-29 in the city of St. Clair. The suggested changes would address traffic operation improvements and safety for motorists, cyclists, and pedestrians.

MDOT plans to include discussion of a proposed road diet from Clinton Avenue to the north city limit, changing the current four-lane roadway into a three-lane road with a dedicated center left-turn lane. Exhibits for potential changes to the existing on-street parking will also be available for comment, including an option for reverse angle parking.
