I-96/Grand River Avenue Interchange Rebuilding Project - Livingston County

About this project

The I-96/Grand River Avenue interchange project involves rebuilding the interchange as a diverging diamond interchange (DDI). As part of the project, three structures will be replaced along I-96: the Ore Creek culvert under I-96 and the two I-96 bridges over Grand River Avenue. The planned improvements to the interchange will require acquiring additional right of way.
