DETROIT – The Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT) will hold a virtual outreach event and in-person public hearing regarding the Environmental Assessment (EA) for proposed changes on I-375 in Detroit.

MDOT said the project extends from Mack Avenue to Atwater Street and “transforms the urban below-grade freeway into a street-level boulevard.” The virtual outreach event and public hearing will allow interested parties the opportunity to view potential changes and make formal documented comments.

From MDOT:

“The I-375 improvement project is designed to address the deterioration of existing bridges and pavement and a functionally obsolete interchange design with an appropriate solution that considers safety, operations and costs while improving connectivity for all users, makes the corridor walkable and supports future economic development plans for the city. Additional information is available on the project website at www.Michigan.gov/I375study.”
