US-127 ramps at Barnes and Kipp roads closed for maintenance

LANSING, Mich. - The Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT) will close the southbound US-127 ramp to Barnes Road and the northbound US-127 off and on ramps at Kipp Road for maintenance. This work is part of the multi-year US-127 resurfacing and bridge repair project in Ingham County.

MDOT is investing approximately $62 million to resurface 12.5 miles of pavement, repair 10 structures, improve drainage, and install guardrail and barrier wall on US-127 between the Jackson/Ingham county line and M-36 in Ingham County.

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.
