US-23 Corridor Traffic Study

Genesee County Metropolitan Planning Commission


Public Input Survey

Public input is crucial to identifying and prioritizing areas of concern in your community as we explore the most feasible improvement strategies within the US-23 corridor study area.

Welcome to the

US-23 Corridor Traffic Study

The Genesee County Metropolitan Planning Commission (GCMPC) is conducting a traffic study (Study) of the US-23 corridor between Owen Road and Bristol Road. The Study includes the interchanges at Hill Road, W. Grand Blanc Road, Thompson Road, North Road, Torrey Road, Silver Lake Road and Owen Road. It also includes a two-mile segment of each crossroad mentioned, extending one mile east and west of its US-23 interchange.

The goals of the Study are to identify opportunities to improve operational efficiency, reliability, and safety for all users of US-23 corridor and assist with community transportation needs within the adjacent local corridors connecting with the freeway. The Study will also consider other infrastructure improvements and planning necessary for communities to implement future projects considering both near term and long term options.

About the Study-

The Study team is overseen by a Steering Committee comprised of representatives from the cities of Fenton and Linden, Mundy Township, Grand Blanc Township, Fenton Township, as well as the Michigan Department of Transportation, the Genesee County Road Commission, the Mass Transportation Authority, and Flint Bishop International Airport. Additionally, key stakeholders and the public are engaged to provide further insight regarding current conditions, areas of concern, and desirable improvements.

The Study will analyze the existing infrastructure, traffic data, crash history and operations, adjacent land use and planned developments in the area, and environmentally sensitive features. At the end of the Study, recommendations will be provided for both near-term and long-term improvements within the corridor that:

  • Improve operational service and access along the freeway, key interchanges, and adjacent corridors to US-23.
  • Consider innovative technology to help manage peak-hour congestion.
  • Promote sustainable growth and access management principles across all communities along the corridor.
  • Understand strengths and areas for improvement with land use and zoning.
  • Prioritize the safe and efficient movement of people and goods.
  • Promote greater economic development and higher quality of life.
  • Encourage proactive and ongoing communication between communities and governmental agencies along the US-23 corridor for future development or redevelopment.
