New high-tech system will help congestion during bridge construction

The new Flex Route system is being unveiled this week by the Michigan Department of Transportation along US-23 in Washtenaw and Livingston counties.

Livingston/Washtenaw Counties, Mich. (WPBN/WGTU) -- The new Flex Route system is being unveiled this week by the Michigan Department of Transportation along US-23 in Washtenaw and Livingston counties.

The road and bridge improvements are taking place between M-14 and Silver Lake Road just north of Ann Arbor. As a part of the $92 million project, MDOT is implementing the Flex Route traffic management system along the highway between M-14 and M-36.

According to MDOT, the new system uses innovative technology to manage peak-hour congestion and improve safety along the corridor.

The new Flex Route system is a lane control system that uses cameras and electronic message boards to let drivers know when an additional lane is available for use during morning and afternoon peak travel periods.
