There will be single-lane closures in each direction Thursday and Friday nights from 8 p.m. to 5 a.m. The northbound Lansing Road ramp to eastbound I-96 will also be closed. Delays are expected; an alternate route is advised.
Performing regular maintenance on bridges helps improve and extend the service life of these structures. Closing roads during this type of work is necessary to provide the safest work area possible for crews and motorists.
