FLINT TOWNSHIP (WJRT) (4/10/2019) - The Michigan Department of Transportation is ready to show off the latest plans for major upgrades to I-75 from Corunna Road to the U.S. 23 split.

The plans include changes to the I-75/I-69 interchange and the interchanges at Miller and Corunna roads.

MDOT has designated the approximately three-mile stretch for improvements, including improved safety and needs of the freeway configuration.

Meetings in June laid out initial visions for the corridor. Meetings on April 22 will review updates to the plan based on initial studies and identify additional needs while MDOT continues developing a feasible budget.

The meetings will be from 3 to 7 p.m. April 22 at the Flint Township Police Department, 5200 Norko Drive.

No construction projects are imminent along the stretch while MDOT develops a long-term strategy to implement over several years.

The corridor is often congested and can be difficult to navigate with short entrance ramps, along with traffic merging in opposite directions.
