MDOT finishedThe Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT) finished reconstruction of M-53 from 34 Mile Road to Bordman Road in 2013, providing wider roads, better drainage and safer intersections.
The $15 million project removed old pavement and poured new concrete roadways with 8-foot shoulders. Center left turn lanes were added from 34 Mile to 36 Mile roads and lanes for passing at areas like Bordman or 37 Mile Road to reduce rear-end accidents.
The project began in March and was expected to be done by October, but completion was bumped up to Nov. 15 due to rainy conditions.
Aspects like planting trees and painting permanent lane markers still remain, but will not begin until spring.
