LANSING, Mich. - The Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT) is closing the westbound I-496 ramp to Grand Avenue for truss work for about nine weeks.

This work is part of a three-year, $80 million investment in I-496. Activity includes rebuilding the freeway and interchange ramps, plus operational improvements between the Lansing Road and M-99 (Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard) interchanges, preventive maintenance on 17 bridges, and upgrades to the service drives from Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard to the east.

The I-496 project is part of 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.
