The Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT) is investing $3.9 million to remove and replace the original Cutler Road bridge over I-96, and $5.5 million to repair and resurface 9.5 miles of I-96 from Sunfield Road to the Ionia/Clinton county line.
Cutler Road will be closed over I-96. Single-lane closures and traffic shifts will be in effect on I-96 for most of the project. I-96 will be closed and detoured for two weekends for bridge demolition and beam setting. I-96 is scheduled to close for bridge demolition 10 p.m. Friday, April 26, through 10 a.m. the following Sunday. Ramps within the project limits will be closed and detoured intermittently for resurfacing.
I-96 traffic will be detoured on M-43, M-66 and Grand River Avenue. Cutler Road traffic will be detoured on Grand River Avenue, Peake Road and Monroe Avenue.
This project will improve the ride quality and extend the service life of the roadway and bridge.
