Mayor urges public to complete I-94 survey

Romulus residents are being urged by Mayor LeRoy Burcroff and officials to make their opinions known regarding a road construction project planned in the city.

Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT) officials are seeking public input for a future I-94/Ecorse Road interchange replacement project in the community. Public comments are welcomed at There is also a more basic version of the survey available at 

The survey will first ask users to rank their main concerns about the area of the intersection and then to rank the four options that will be described. The main concern topics to be ranked are: Improve safety; Enhance access; Accommodate all users; Add pedestrian/bike path to Ecorse Road and Other. Selecting the Other category will allow users to type in their own topic.

The four options under consideration all include eliminating the left-hand entrance ramps to I-94 and adding full access to all directions to and from I-94 and Ecorse Road. Those options are: a diamond interchange with signals at the ramps; adding a diamond interchange with roundabouts at the ramps; a partial cloverleaf interchange with two loop ramps or a diverging diamond at the interchange.  

Within the survey there are concept drawings as well as more details for each option. This project is planned for 2024, officials said.
