West Cross Water Infrastructure and Pavement Rehabilitation (YCUA and MDOT)

Earlier this summer, YCUA undertook a significant water infrastructure modernization project in West Cross from Huron to Summit Street. This project significantly updated the water system to help ensure system reliability.

MDOT began a resurfacing project with associated work in the right-of-way, following the YCUA project, on West Cross from Huron to Summit Street beginning the week of 9/7.  This project is currently planned to end the third week of November, weather & covid permitting.  There will be periodic lane shifts, delays, and temporary detours as the project progresses. Please travel carefully through the project area and pay attention to all posted signage.

For up-to-date information regarding this project, please visit MiDrive at or call MDOT's Brighton Traffic Service Center at 810-227-4681.
