Seymour Road closure in Jackson begins Wednesday
May 26, 2023
LANSING, Mich. - The Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT) will close Seymour Road for rebuilding on Wednesday.
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.

Overall I-94 project completion date:
This project will require eastbound Seymour Road traffic to be detoured via Elm Road to O’Leary Road.
Westbound Seymour Road traffic will be detoured via O’Leary Road and Elm Road to 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.
These improvements will provide increased safety and mobility in this area of I-94, which is a significant local and national trade corridor. Closing lanes during this type of work is necessary to provide the safest work area possible for crews and motorists.
