The Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT) is investing $4 million to make concrete pavement repairs and resurface I-96 from M-11 (28th Street) to Thornapple River Drive in Kent County, and from the Kent/Ionia county line (Montcalm Avenue) to Bliss Road in Ionia County.
Weekend lane closures will be in effect 6 a.m. Saturday through 6 a.m. Monday on I-96 from M-11 to Thornapple River Drive. Weekday lane closures will be in place on I-96 from Montcalm Avenue to Bliss Road 6 p.m. Sunday through 6 a.m. Friday.
This project will provide a smoother, safer driving surface and will extend the service life of the roadway.
