Pave the Way I-496 LogoThe Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT) is investing approximately $60 million to improve I-496 between I-96 and Lansing Road. Work will include reconstructing the freeway and ramps, preventive maintenance on all the bridges in the project area, and making operational improvements to the entrance and exit ramps at the I-96, Creyts Road, and Waverly Road interchanges.

How Traffic Will Be Affected:


Work will be done one direction at a time, with eastbound I-496 closed for construction first. Traffic will be detoured along Lansing Road from I-96 to I-496. Bridge work will require short-term closures of detours of local roads. Alternate routes are advised.
