Projects in Progress
TH-41/CSAH 78 and CSAH-14
An interchange at TH-41/CSAH-78 is programmed for construction in 2018. This interchange will significantly improve the safety and mobility on the US-169 corridor and river crossing access via TH-41. In addition, the project includes a proposed overpass near CH-14 and extension of the frontage road system along the east side of US-169 between CH-78 and CH-14. The expectation is to begin construction at the end of 2018. This project will improve the safety and mobility in this area by removing direct access to US-169. This project is consistent with the long-term vision of converting this segment of US-169 into a freeway.
CSAH 59 Intersection Project
A Reduced Conflict U-Turn (RCUT) Intersection is in progress for this location. The project will be constructed to improve safety and manage access for proposed economic development. This project is a cost-effective alternative design solution for the near-term in place of a higher-cost interchange solution. With RCUT design, left turning movements onto the mainline are performed with a right turn, followed by a U-turn to the desired travel direction. This eliminates the need to find gaps in both directions to make the left turn, particularly important for trucks too large to use the center median area as a refuge.
