For those of you that were unable to attend the Michigan Department of Transportation's (MDOT) Open House Meeting held on November 6, 2019 regarding the proposed lane reduction "road diet" on US Highway 12, you can send your comments to MDOT.
MDOT is proposing a lane reduction on US Highway 12 from four lanes to one lane in each direction with a center turn lane starting at the Indiana/Michigan state line, going past Grand Beach and all the way to Mayhew Street in New Buffalo, At that point, it will go back to four lanes until you reach Wilson Street which is the street just before Redamak's where the lanes will again be reduced to one lane in each direction with a center turn lane until reaching Red Arrow Highway.
There was a form available at the meeting to take comments. If you would like to submit comments to MDOT on the proposed lane reduction, click on the link below; print the form, fill it out and email, fax or mail it back to MDOT. Fax number, email address and mailing address are located on the bottom of the form.
Please send in your comments to MDOT as soon as possible.
