I-75 rebuilding in Cheboygan County continues April 1

GAYLORD, Mich. – The Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT) is continuing the construction phase of a two-year, $52 million investment to rebuild 9 miles of I-75 from Levering Road to US-31 in Cheboygan County. This year’s work includes rebuilding the northern half of the project (northbound lanes first, then southbound lanes) from Hebron Town Hall Road north to south of US-31.

Work in 2023 included rebuilding the southern half of the project. The project includes removing the 1950s-era concrete roadway, which has been susceptible to joint deterioration, particularly during extreme summer temperatures.

Traffic will be maintained with directional crossovers south of Hebron Town Hall Road and south of US-31, with a movable barrier wall separating northbound and southbound traffic. The movable barrier wall will allow for two lanes of northbound traffic (one southbound) during peak traffic on Fridays, and two lanes of southbound traffic (one northbound) on Sundays.

The project will support 738 jobs.
