Rep. Ken Borton, R-Gaylord, released the following statement Monday after a recent announcement from the Michigan Department of Transportation outlining plans for a $55 million interstate interchange along 1-75 and M-32 in Gaylord.

“It’s great to see MDOT recognize both the poor condition of the I-75 interchange in Gaylord and the growing congestion motorists see during tourism seasons,” Borton said. “This project is a great investment in our community. I’m really looking forward to using the new interchange myself.”

The project is set to begin in 2026, with construction expected to wrap up in 2027. The current infrastructure was built in 1961 and, per MDOT, needs to be replaced due to poor condition.

State officials said the need for replacement allowed them to explore alternatives that would provide a more safe and efficient movement of people and goods through the Gaylord area. The interchange is also expected to accommodate future increased traffic.

For more information on the I-75 project, MDOT has created a project website.
