TRAFFIC RESTRICTIONS:
Eastbound and westbound I-96 will each have a single-lane closure at US-127 from 9 a.m. until 3 p.m. daily throughout the project. An alternate route is advised.

SAFETY BENEFITS:
Performing regular maintenance on bridges helps improve and extend the service life of these structures. Closing lanes during this type of work is necessary to provide the safest work area possible for crews and motorists.
