I-96 bridges over Billwood Highway and the Grand River

Start: Summer 2019     End: Fall 2019
Investment: $1.3 million

Performing regular maintenance on bridges helps improve and extend the service life of these structures. Closing lanes during this type of work is necessary to provide the safest work area possible for crews and motorists.
What Is Being Done?

The Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT) will invest about $1.3 million to perform critical preventive maintenance and repair work on the eastbound and westbound I-96 bridges over the Grand River and Billwood Highway in Eaton County.

How Traffic Will Be Affected:

All work will be done one direction at a time with all lanes closed on the structure being repaired. Each closure is expected to take place over nine consecutive days (dates will be announced in advance).

During each closure, traffic will be detoured using US-127 and I-69.

Periodic nighttime lane closures will take place throughout the project to accomplish remaining work.

Full Closures:
WB I-96: 9PM Friday July 19th to 5am Monday, July 29th 
EB I-96: 9PM Friday August 2nd to 5am Monday, August 12th
