OVERALL I-94 PROJECT COMPLETION DATE:

PROJECT:
The Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT) will close the right lane on eastbound I-94 from Airport Road to Elm Avenue to shift eastbound I-94 traffic onto the shoulder. This shift will include short-term ramp closures at the Airport Road on ramp to eastbound I-94, the eastbound off ramp from West Avenue, and the eastbound on and off ramps from Cooper Avenue.

This work is part of MDOT's ongoing $120 million investment to rebuild and widen I-94 near the Airport Road interchange to just west of the east US-127/I-94 interchange in Blackman and Leoni Township. The I-94 project involves upgrading the US-127/M-50 (West Avenue)/I-94 interchange to a diverging diamond interchange, the Elm Road interchange with roundabouts, and the Lansing Avenue bridge over I-94.

Funding for this 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.

TRAFFIC RESTRICTIONS:
All lanes and ramps will be open by 12 p.m. April 24. Motorists are advised to seek alternate routes.

SAFETY BENEFITS:
This traffic configuration will increase safety for workers and motorists through this work zone. These improvements will provide increased safety and mobility in this area of I-94, which is a significant local and national trade corridor.
