Construction Projects

Road Work Ahead

In Portage, detour signs point to progress! Safe, quality roads make a critical contribution to a city's economic development and growth and bring about important social benefits.  We realize that motorists and residents may be disrupted and inconvenienced during construction projects by detours, local road closures, dust, noise, heavy equipment traffic, and increased traffic on surrounding roads. However, when projects are complete, the benefits include reducing costly vehicle repairs caused by inferior roads, the number or severity of accidents, and congestion during peak travel times.

This summer, the City of Portage will perform a major reconstruction project on East Milham Avenue from South Westnedge Avenue to Portage Road.  Also affecting Portage motorists, the Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT) is starting a two-year project on I-94 from Lovers Lane to Sprinkle Road.  Rounding out the major projects this summer, the Road Commission of Kalamazoo will have a major project on Sprinkle Road from East Milham Avenue to N. Avenue.  View the details of these projects and learn how to receive ongoing updates here.
