Year-long Construction Project Coming To I-96

DETROIT (WWJ) – M-DOT is ready to get to work on another big construction project in metro Detroit — this one, covering parts of I-96.

$15.5 million is being spent to repair five bridges between Milford and Kent Lake roads. The project is expected to run for an entire year — causing lane closures between Lyon and Milford Townships. Several ramps will also be closed during construction.

Crews will leave three lanes of traffic open during peak travel times and a traffic shift will be in place with a movable concrete barrier.

Stay with WWJ Newsradio 950 and CBS for up-to-date traffic and construction information.

    If MDOT would just build better concrete roads, like the stretch of I-75 in Detroit, we wouldn’t be going through this all the time. Road repair is a nighmare in Michigan until MDOT wakes up and sees the value of making quality roads. Besides Michigan has too many trucks providing high compressive stress to the boundary. People can’t get to work if they’re lucky to be employed MDOT! And with Michigan’s high taxed gas, where’s the money going anyway?
