Southbound M-99 closed under I-96 in Ingham County Tuesday night for bridge deck pouring

LANSING, Mich. - The Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT) will close southbound M-99 (Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard) under I-96 in Ingham County for deck pouring.

This work is part of a three-year, $44 million investment on I-96 to rebuild the eastbound and westbound I-96 bridges over Billwood Highway, the Grand River, and to perform maintenance on the I-96 bridges over M-99 and Washington Avenue. Most of the work will be completed in 2023 and 2024 with road construction and crossover removal taking place in 2025.

This work 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.
