Rebuilding US-127/I-496 from I-96 to I-496

Proposed dates: Fall 2023 - December 2025

MDOT is proposing to rebuild and provide operational improvements on this segment of US-127/I-496 to address safety concerns, improve roadway geometrics, and improve vehicular movement, all while keeping future maintenance concerns, the environment, and cost-effectiveness in mind for road users by adding a permanent third lane through this corridor.

This major project will also include improving and rebuilding bridges through this segment, as well as upgrades to drainage, signs, and pavement markings. This work is proposed to occur from summer 2023 through 2025.

Traffic restrictions:
To be provided at a future date.

Rebuilding US-127 from I-496 to I-69

Proposed date: Spring 2026

MDOT is proposing to rebuild and realign a portion of US-127 from I-496 to Kalamazoo Street to improve roadway geometrics, safety, and vehicular movement through this corridor.
