PROJECT:   The Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT) is closing both directions of I-94 to allow crews to safely demolish the Lansing Avenue bridge.

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 replacing 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: Eastbound I-94 traffic will be detoured north to US-127 (West Avenue), then east to Parnall Road, south to Cooper Street, and then back to eastbound I-94.

Westbound I-94 traffic will be detoured north to Cooper Street, west to Parnall Road, south to US-127 (West Avenue), and back to westbound I-94.

Please follow posted detours. 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.
