Seymour Road to close in Jackson for culvert construction
May 10, 2022
LANSING, Mich. - The Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT) will close Seymour Road for culvert construction. 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.

Overall project end date:
Eastbound Seymour Road traffic will be detoured north along Elm Road and east along O’leary Road. Westbound Seymour Road will follow O’leary Road to Elm Road and south to Seymour Road.
Access to all residences and businesses will be maintained. The closure will be just east of the driveway to Art Moehn Chevrolet. Access to residences and all other businesses will be along Seymour Road from the east.

These improvements will provide increased safety and mobility in this area of I-94, which is a significant local and national trade corridor. Closing lanes during this type of work is necessary to provide the safest work area possible for crews and motorists.
