Macomb County Executive Mark Hackel addressed the officials and principals assembled for the
Ground Breaking for this important new exit ramp.
AEW designed this important project that will give the motoring public a new exit ramp that will connect M-53 to 33 Mile Road in Bruce Township. It will include a deceleration lane for northbound M-53 that drivers will take to a roundabout at 33 Mile Road and McKay. Drivers can then travel east, north or west. Southbound drivers on M-53 will have access to a turnaround less than one-half mile south of the connection. A second turnaround for northbound drivers will be constructed on M-53, less than one-half mile north of 33 Mile Road.
The project is expected to cost approximately $2.6 million to design and develop, and funding sources include federal, state and township entities. Construction is scheduled to be completed by mid-November of this year.
Participating in the Ground Breaking were Bruce Township Treasurer Debbie Obrecht, D’Agostini Land Company representative Craig Fenton, Bruce Township Trustee Mark Falker, Macomb County Dept. of Roads Director Bryan Santo, Michigan Dept. of Transportation Manager of the Macomb County Service Center Drew Buckner, State Rep. Pete Lucido, Bruce Township Supervisor Richard Cory, Macomb County Executive Mark Hackel, Developer Darryl Racz, Bruce Township Clerk Susan Brockmann, and Macomb County Commissioner Don Brown.
