Work on westbound I-96 in Ingham County begins Wednesday

LANSING, Mich. - The Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT) will begin lane closures on westbound I-96 between Cedar Street and Waverly Road in Ingham County for concrete barrier removal through Thursday.

This work is part of a three-year, $44 million investment to rebuild the eastbound and westbound I-96 bridges over Billwood Highway, the Grand River, M-99, and Washington Avenue. Construction will begin on Feb. 6. Most of the work is being 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.
