Main Street bridge preventive maintenance over I-496 starts Monday
ESTIMATED START DATE:
Monday, April 26, 2021
ESTIMATED COMPLETION DATE:
Friday, May 7, 2021
As part of the Rebuilding Michigan project on I-496, the Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT) will paint the Main Street bridge over I-496.
Funding for this project is made possible by Gov. Gretchen Whitmer's Rebuilding Michigan program to rebuild the state highways and bridges that are critical to the state's economy and carry the most traffic. The investment strategy is aimed at fixes that result in longer useful lives and improves the condition of the state's infrastructure.
The eastbound Lansing Road ramp to eastbound I-496 will be closed and detoured for the duration of this work. Please follow posted detours. Motorists are advised to seek alternate routes.
These improvements will provide increased safety and mobility in this area of the I-96 and I-496, which is a significant local and national trade corridor. This preventive maintenance work on the bridge will extend the life of the structure and preserve taxpayer investment.
