Port Huron, MI — Road work is underway in St. Clair County on Sparling Road in Wales Township and at the intersection of Dove and Range Roads near I-94.
Sparling Road, between Goodells Road and Emerson Road will be closed to traffic starting the week of July 13th. The work will consist of both road and bridge improvements. The work is expected to be completed in late August. Detour routes will be posted, but local access will be maintained.
Construction of a new roundabout at the intersection of Dove Road, Range Road, and the Eastbound I-94 exit begins July 16th and is expected to go through the beginning of September. The intersection will be completely closed. Eastbound I-94 traffic is advised to exit in Marysville.
According to the St. Clair County Road Commission, access to and from Westbound I-94 will be maintained, and access to the Eastbound I-94 on-ramp will also be maintained but only from north of the intersection.
The Sparling Road work has a $310,600 price tag, while the Roundabout project has a $1.16 million dollar estimated cost. Both projects are financed with local, state, and federal funds.
