Road construction planned in Canton around Ikea

A major road project is coming the Canton area in hopes of easing the traffic congestion there. 

The project will bring about $9 million worth of improvements in the area of I-275 and Ford Road. The area is known to be heavily congested as it serves the entrance to the only Ikea store in Michigan. 

The project plans to: 

 - Pave Lotz Road
 - Expand westbound Ford Road to include 3 continuous lanes of traffic 
 - Add a second exit to SB I-275

The Michigan Department of Transportation is expected to contribute about $3.75 million of funding for the project, while Wayne County will pay $5 million for the paving of Lotz Road.

MDOT is holding an open house to brief neighbors about the project tonight, March 4, 2015. The open house is from 5 - 7 p.m. at Summit on the Park. 

If you cannot make the briefing and have questions or concerns about the project, you're asked to call the MDOT branch in Taylor.
