M-72 Resurfacing Project in Grand Traverse and Leelanau Counties 

MDOT will invest $1.7 million to resurface 2.5 miles of M-72 from Bugai Road/Gray Road to Bay Street in Grand Traverse and Leelanau counties. The project also includes wider paved shoulders, guardrail upgrades, and drainage improvements. Based on economic modeling, this investment is expected to support 25 jobs.

Construction is expected to be completed by Nov. 3. Drivers can expect lane closures and traffic regulators.

“Addressing our infrastructure needs so that constituents of the 103rd district can safely travel using our roads is an important priority for me as a legislator,” said state Representative Besty Coffia (D-Traverse City).

“I am proud to support continued investment in our communities for key road projects like this one, which provides crucial upgrades to our local infrastructure.”
