Overall, the project involves:

- Constructing a new bridge extending Latson Road over I-96,
- Building new ramps to connect I-96 and Latson Road,
- Reconstructing and relocating Grand Oaks Drive and Beck Road,
- Reconstructing and widening Latson/Nixon Road,
- Widening the Grand River Avenue /Latson Road intersection,
- Removing the existing rest area along westbound I-96, just past the Lake Chemung exit, and
- Work on an enhancement project to add a nonmotorized path along the west side of Latson/Nixon Road from Grand River Avenue to Beck Road.

MDOT reminds drivers: Snowplows need room to groom.
