M-59 Hall Road Reconstruction Project Info

The reconstructing of 3.7 miles of M-59 in the cities of Sterling Heights and Utica, and Shelby, Macomb and Clinton Townships has begun and will be completed in two phases, according to MDOT. Phase 1, from Mar.-Oct. 2017, will include new asphalt and drainage, signals, sidewalks (to include new ADA compliant ramps), signs, and foliage. Phase 2, from Mar.-Sep. 2018, will include adding a fourth lane on both sides of M-59 between Garfield and Romeo Plank roads.
