The Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT) will hold two public hearings regarding a Draft Supplemental Environmental Impact Statement (DSEIS) and section 4(f) Evaluation for proposed improvements on I-94. The hearings will allow interested parties the opportunity to view displays, speak with project team members, and make formal documented comments. The project, located in the city of Detroit, extends from east of the I-94/I-96 interchange to east of Conner Avenue, along M-10 from Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard to Seward Avenue, and along I-75 from Warren Avenue to Custer Street.

The purpose of the project is to improve safety, capacity, local connectivity and condition of the I-94 roadway, service drives, bridges, and interchanges between I-96 and Conner Avenue. This project is needed to address structural and operational deficiencies on I-94 in Detroit.

• Pending approval of the final SEIS and Record of Decision, major roadwork is expected to start in 2023.
• Additional project information is available on the project website at https://I94Detroit.org/. /

The DSEIS describes and analyzes construction alternatives and the measures taken to minimize harm to social, economic and environmental resources in the project area.

As of Aug. 30, 2019, copies of the DSEIS are available at the following community locations for public review:
