Agency: Transportation

COUNTY:
Ingham

ROADWAY:
US-127

CLOSEST CITY:
Lansing

START DATE:
Monday, Oct. 30, 2017

ESTIMATED COMPLETION DATE:
Late December 2017

PROJECT:
The Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT) will resume construction Oct. 30 of the sound wall along northbound US-127 between Grand River Avenue and Lake Lansing Road, and along southbound US-127 just north of Grand River Avenue.

The project originally began in April 2016. Delays with material and production schedules have pushed back the completion date several times. Due to the large number of panels needed to complete the wall, and to ensure the quality of those panels, work plans were adjusted that resulted in crews being off-site until the majority of those panels had been constructed.

TRAFFIC IMPACTS:
Once construction resumes, the US-127 auxiliary lanes will be closed in each direction, along with the shoulder.

Two lanes will be open in each direction on US-127.
