US-23 Flex Route set to open soon

October 30, 2017  //  FOUND IN: Updates & Resources

The US-23 Flex Route, which is located on US-23 between M-14 and M-36 (9 Mile Road), will soon be fully operational.

The state’s first flex route will include a network of easy-to-read signs, cameras and electronic overhead message boards that will constantly monitor traffic conditions. The components that make up the system all work together to ease traffic congestion by opening the median (flex) lanes as needed — and to alert motorists regarding any traffic incidents that may be ahead. 

The Michigan Department of Transportation encourages every motorist to review the information available concerning how it operates prior to the route opening in early November.
