Additional lane closures are set next week in connection to the I-96 Flex Route project.
The Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT) says work on the Wixom Road bridge over I-96 will take place over approximately 10 days.
Beginning 6 a.m. Monday, July 11, through 5 p.m. Wednesday, July 20:
– Wixom Road will be reduced to one lane in each direction over I-96.
– The southbound Wixom Road ramp to eastbound I-96 will be closed. The detour will be eastbound Grand River Avenue to northbound Beck Road to I-96.
– The westbound I-96 ramp to southbound Wixom Road will be closed. The detour will be southbound Beck Road to westbound Grand River Avenue to Wixom Road.
– The northbound Wixom Road ramp to westbound I-96 will be closed. The detour will be westbound Grand River Avenue to northbound Kent Lake Road to I-96.
Funding for the project is made possible by Gov. Gretchen Whitmer’s Rebuilding Michigan program to rebuild the state highways and bridges that are critical to the state’s economy and carry the most traffic. The investment strategy is aimed at fixes that result in longer useful lives and improves the condition of the state’s infrastructure.
