M-46 Project  August 8th Update: The current detour from Chapin Road east will be in effect until the end a August.  Everything is weather dependent.  When it ends, a week is needed to complete the work from the first detour and it will go back into effect.  Paving from Merrill east to Chapin will begin next week.  The project has officially been delayed due to utility companies not getting their relocation work done in a timely manner.  Hopefully, the weather will cooperate so the total project can be completed before December.  All lanes would be open to 2-way traffic if a winter shut down were necessary.  Project management from MDOT and the contractor ask that folks understand the the planned shallow ditches in from of residences within the public right of way is 
to insure long term drainage along the entire project.
