OVERALL I-94 PROJECT COMPLETION DATE:
The Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT) will close the US-127/M-50 (West Avenue) overpass at I-94 in Jackson for bridge demolition.
This work is part of MDOT's ongoing $120 million investment to rebuild and widen I-94 near the Airport Road interchange to just west of the east US-127/I-94 interchange in Blackman and Leoni Township. The I-94 project involves upgrading the US-127/M-50 (West Avenue)/I-94 interchange to a diverging diamond interchange, the Elm Road interchange with roundabouts, and the Lansing Avenue bridge over I-94.
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.
Northbound US-127/M-50 traffic will be detoured along eastbound I-94 to the M-106 (Cooper Street) interchange. From there, drivers can either loop back via westbound I-94 to get back to northbound US-127/M-50 or take northbound M-106 to westbound Parnall Road to get to northbound US-127/M-50.
Southbound US-127/M-50 traffic will be detoured along westbound I-94 to the Airport Road interchange, then loop back on eastbound I-94 to get back to southbound US-127/M-50 (West Avenue).
Please follow posted detours. Motorists are advised to seek alternate routes.
This traffic configuration will increase safety for workers and motorists through this work zone. These improvements will provide increased safety and mobility in this area of I-94, which is a significant local and national trade corridor.
