The Michigan Department of Transportation is planning some road projects in Albion, including reducing a section of M-199 from four lanes to two.   MDOT Spokesman Nick Schirripa says it makes sense, due to a reduction in vehicular traffic, and an increase in bike and pedestrian traffic.  He says the reduction will allow for a middle turn lane, as well as pedestrian and bike lanes.

In 2020, MDOT will be resurfacing M-199 between I-94 and Michigan Avenue, and between 25 1/2 Mile Road (Starr Commonwealth Road) and Superior Street in Albion and Sheridan Township, Calhoun County. In addition to reducing M-199 from four lanes to three lanes, construction plans include sidewalk ramp upgrades.

The Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT) and the City of Albion are holding a public meeting to discuss the potential for reducing the number of lanes on M-199 (Austin Avenue) from four lanes to three lanes between 27 Mile Road and Superior Street.
