The project includes concrete patch work, curb and gutter repair, upgrading sidewalk ramps to meet Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) standards, improved pedestrian signals, drainage work, and pavement markings. 
 
Traffic safety will be improved for drivers and pedestrians with a smoother riding surface and improved drainage, plus the addition of ADA sidewalks and push buttons at intersections.

To complete this work as soon as possible, traffic will be reduced to two lanes in each direction of M-153 during weekday morning and afternoon rush hours. During off-peak times, overnights and weekends, only one lane will be open in each direction to get as much work done as possible and keep lanes open during rush hours.
