Weekend ramp and lane closures at I-496/US-127 interchange in Lansing begin Friday

LANSING, Mich. - The Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT) will close the eastbound I-496 ramp to southbound US-127 in the Lansing area beginning Friday to allow crews to safely perform shoulder upgrades and crossover work. Drivers should expect intermittent lane closures along US-127 in the area as well.

This work is part of the $205 million project to rebuild US-127/I-496 from I-96 to I-496 that will address safety concerns, improve roadway geometrics, and improve vehicular movement. In addition, this work is expected to improve and rebuild bridges through this segment, and update drainage, signs and pavement markings in Ingham County.
