Additional lane restrictions will go into effect next week along I-96 in western Oakland County.
The Michigan Department of Transportation reports that I-96 Flex Route project crews will be reducing eastbound and westbound I-96 between Kent Lake and Wixom roads to two lanes beginning next week.
Starting at 6 a.m. Tuesday, May 31, westbound I-96 will be reduced to two lanes from Wixom to Kent Lake roads; these lane closures will remain in place through late fall. Currently, all ramps are expected to remain open as frequently as possible.
Starting 6 a.m.-3 p.m. Thursday, June 2, eastbound I-96 will be reduced to two lanes at Kent Lake Road in preparation for the upcoming traffic shift across the median. The traffic shift will move eastbound I-96 traffic onto the shared westbound lanes and is expected in the next couple of weeks.
