Blake Road near I-94 closed starting Wednesday in Jackson
October 14, 2022
LANSING, Mich. - The Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT) will close Blake Road near I-94 in Jackson to install a storm sewer. 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.

Traffic will be detoured via Dettman Road, and Seymour Road.
Motorists are advised to seek alternate routes.
Based on economic modeling, this investment is expected to directly and indirectly support 1,524 jobs.
This project will increase safety for workers and motorists through this work zone and will provide a smoother and safer driving surface.
