I-94 Road and Bridge Reconstruction, Jackson County
Starting in 2018, the Michigan Departmentof Transportation (MDOT) will make improvements to I-94 in Jackson County, including:
- Reconstructing 1.4 miles of freeway between Lansing Avenue and Elm Road;
- Resurfacing 3.5 miles between Lansing Road and M-60, and resurfacing 4 miles between Elm Road and Sargent Road;
- Rebuilding and redesigning the I-94/Cooper Street interchange, including the addition of new roundabouts on each side of the new bridge and reconstructing each of the ramps.
- Replacing the bridge over the Grand River.
As part of the project, I-94 will be shifted approximately 60 feet south of its current location. The widening of Cooper Street and the bridge reconstruction over the Grand River will require right-of-way acquisition, primarily on the south side of I-94.
Construction will take place in stages to minimize the disruption to motorists and residents.
During construction, two lanes will be open in each direction the majority of the time, with short-term single-lane closures possible at off-peak times.
Cooper Street will be detoured at I-94 during construction due to the large amount of rock excavation that will take place at this location.
