MDOT holds public meeting prior to M-6 reconstruction

The 13 Watchdog team uncovered serious problems with the way sections of M-6 were built.

GRAND RAPIDS, MICH. - The Michigan Department of Transportation held its second public meeting Wednesday to answer questions from the public regarding M-6's upcoming reconstruction.

On July 8, the eastbound lanes on M-6 between Wilson Avenue and I-196 will be closed for total overhaul. Once completed the same reconstruction will happen along the westbound lands of M-6.

The total project is projected to end in mid-November. 

The $9 million project was scheduled for 2022, but due to unusual pavement erosion the project was fast tracked to this summer.

Nearly 40,000 commuters use this stretch of M-6 daily. All first responders and popular trucking lines have been informed of the closures and are encouraged to circumvent the project by way of I-96, US-131 and I-196.
