I-96 Resurfacing and Bridge Improvements - Kent County

Start: April 2022    End: September 2022

What Is Being Done?
The Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT) is investing approximately $6 million to resurface 4.5 miles of I-96 from east of Bristol Avenue to West River Drive in the city of Walker. Work also includes bridge improvements on the eastbound I-96 ramp to southbound US-131 over the Marquette Railroad and West River Drive.   

How Traffic Will Be Affected
Lane closures, traffic shifts and ramp closures will be in effect throughout the project. The eastbound I-96 ramp to southbound US-131 will be closed and detoured to northbound US-131, then West River Drive to southbound US-131. Alternate detour: East on I-96 to Plainfield Avenue, then westbound I-96 to southbound US-131.

Safety Benefits
This project will improve the ride and is a long-term investment for the service life of the corridor and associated bridges.
