Traffic Signal Work At M-72/Elk Lake To Start Monday, Continue Through May

By Beth Milligan | Dec. 6, 2019

The Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT) will invest $253,000 to install a new traffic signal at the M-72 intersection with Williamsburg Road/Elk Lake Road starting Monday.

MDOT's work will be "intermittent as weather allows," according to the department, with the project expected to be complete by May 16. Construction will require intermittent shoulder closures at the intersection during most of the project duration. Lane closures with traffic regulators will be required when the traffic signal heads are installed above the roadway. The signal is being installed to help regulate traffic through the busy intersection and is expected to reduce some conflicts between M-72 and cross traffic.

The Grand Traverse County Road Commission completed modifications to the county road approaches earlier this year in preparation for the signal installation.
