I-94 bridge construction over Pipestone Road starts Thursday
September 06, 2022
COLOMA, Mich. - The Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT) on Monday is continuing work to widen the eastbound I-94 bridge over Pipestone Road to prepare for the I-94 rebuilding project between Red Arrow Highway and Britain Avenue in 2023 and 2024. Crews will begin building the new, temporary bridge lanes. Work this year is a $7.3 million investment that includes pavement repairs on 8.8 miles of I-94 from Puetz Road to Britain Avenue and building median crossovers and emergency pull-offs on I-94.
Thursday, Sept. 8, 2022
Estimated end date:
Friday, Sept. 23, 2022
Expect single-lane closures on eastbound and westbound I-94. Pipestone Road will be closed and detoured.
The Pipestone Road detours are:
- Northbound Pipestone Road: Eastbound I-94, westbound Napier Avenue, and westbound I-94 back to northbound Pipestone Road.
- Southbound Pipestone Road: Westbound I-94, southbound M-139, and eastbound I-94 back to southbound Pipestone Road.
Based on economic modeling, this investment is expected to directly and indirectly support nearly 93 jobs.
This work will widen the freeway, improving the driving surface and safety during rebuilding.
