Elm Road ramp to eastbound I-94 in Jackson closed beginning Friday
August 25, 2022
LANSING, Mich. - The Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT) will close the Elm Road entrance ramp to eastbound I-94 in Jackson on Friday.
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.

Estimated end date:
Tuesday, Oct. 4, 2022
Overall project end date:
The posted detour will direct traffic to the M-106 (Cooper Street) interchange via Elm Road, Ganson Street, and M-106 (Cooper Street) to enter eastbound I-94. Motorists should expect delays.
Based on economic modeling, this investment is expected to directly and indirectly support nearly 1,524 jobs.
Closing lanes during this type of work is necessary to provide the safest work area possible for crews and motorists.
