It looks like the effort to modify the I-69/75 interchange is still being discussed and planned. It will be very costly. The interchange study webpage is at https://www.michigan.gov/mdot/0,4616,7-151-11058-498332--F,00.html

Here is an article from January on the current effort:

--- Quote ---The county is preparing to add a whopper of a transportation project to its long-range plans -- a $700-million reconstruction of parts of Interstate 75 and I-69 and a modernization of the area where the highways connect. ...

The project area carries a high traffic load and has a collection of problems including difficult merges, a high crash rate, flooding and prime-time congestion.

The plan for fixing those problems and improving safety includes building I-75 into an elevated span over the top of I-69 and CN Railroad property, the addition of collector and distributor roads on I-75 to separate thru traffic from vehicles trying to take ramps on or off the highway, and improved lighting.

Elevating I-75 over the railroad property would also remove the potential for flooding of the expressway, MDOT officials said in a 2019 presentation of the plan at open houses in the area.

When I clicked on the Michigan Live webpage, it said "Page Not Found", meaning it is a dead link. The DOT webpage worked fine, on the other hand.

Iím always skeptical of spending on large road projects in heavily declining areas such as Flint. If the road is completely falling apart, then sure, but I donít see a reason to spend money on roads that wonít see increased traffic volumes anytime soon.
