I-496 from Lansing Road to the Grand River, Ingham County
The Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT) is investing $80 million to rebuild the freeway and interchange ramps, including operational improvements between the Lansing Road and M-99 (Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard) interchanges, preventive maintenance on 17 bridges, and upgrades to the service drives from Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard to the east.
Eastbound I-496 will be reduced to one lane and detoured to Malcom X Street (the eastbound service drive) at the M-99 (Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard) exit.
Westbound I-496 will be detoured to St. Joseph Street (the westbound service drive) at the Grand Avenue exit.
A minimum of two lanes will be open on the service drives during the detour.
These improvements will provide increased safety and mobility in this area of the I-496, which is an important route at the state capital for commuter, commercial and tourism traffic.
