M-59 Corridor

Project Highlights:

  • 5.6 miles expanded from four to six lanes
  • 16 ramps and 9 bridges reconstructed or rebuilt
  • Successfully manage traffic during construction

What We Did

Made possible by a $56-million federal stimulus fund, the expansion of M-59 between Crooks and Ryan roads was designed to eliminate bottlenecks on this commuter route connecting Oakland and Macomb counties. In addition to expanding the road from four to six lanes, the project included erecting a barrier between eastbound and westbound traffic, replacing storm sewers, reconstructing 16 ramps, and rebuilding or rehabilitating 9 bridges.
