Michigan Dixie Highway

Between Junction and Airport Road in Saginaw, Michigan is a historic transportation route. Dixie Highway is a critical corridor that provides area manufacturers with immediate access to Interstate 75. In addition, Dixie Highway serves as the major gateway to Michigan’s number one tourist destination, the City of Frankenmuth, also known as Michigan’s Little Bavaria.

In FY 2018, EDA awarded $2 million in Public Works funds to the Saginaw County Road Commission for the reconstruction and expansion of Dixie Highway. It is estimated that the project will generate an immediate return on investment, with the creation of 54 jobs and $6.5 million in private investment while simultaneously supporting increased economic opportunities for Amigo Mobility International Inc., Orchid Unique Orthopedic Solutions, GLE Precision, and numerous other companies. The project will also indirectly support dozens of tourism businesses in Frankenmuth, providing an annual economic impact of $110 million on the regional economy.
