Westbound I-94 traffic shift in Jackson begins Monday

LANSING, Mich. - The Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT) will shift westbound I-94 between M-106 (Cooper Street) and US-127 Monday. The exit ramp from westbound I-94 to Elm Road will be closed for rebuilding.

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 improve the condition of the state's infrastructure.
