Meanwhile, also starting this Monday, South Hill Road will be closed over I-96 for a month for bridge repair work beginning 7 a.m.
That closure is scheduled to last through 5 p.m. Monday, May 9.

The I-96 Flex Route project includes rebuilding the freeway, rebuilding the median shoulders for use during peak periods, sign upgrades, and active traffic management installation, including intelligent transportation systems (ITS) equipment, overhead gantry installation and ramp signals for metering traffic onto the freeway. Electronic message boards will alert drivers with speed advisories and travel information.
