Everyone. This portion of I-75 currently carries up to 174,000 vehicles per day, which includes residents, commuters, carpoolers, local businesses, intrastate and interstate commercial vehicles, and tourists. Since this freeway was originally built in the 1960s and has never been rebuilt, modernization is greatly needed. The addition of the HOV lane will help ease the increasing congestion. Improving this aging segment of freeway infrastructure will increase safety and provide an improved driving surface and experience.
Yes. Per MDOT Policy and Federal Regulations, all federally funded projects that improve the roadway by adding capacity are required to be studied to determine the reasonableness and feasibility of noise protection. If any area qualifies for noise protection by MDOT and FHWA, it will be built as part of the project.
It is expected that some trees will be removed during construction. However, they will be replaced, and in some cases with more trees than what was originally in place. Additional opportunities for landscaping are also included within the project.
