JACKSON, MI – The link from E. Michigan Avenue to Louis Glick Highway was supposed to reopen on Saturday, Nov. 11.

It won’t open again until the end of November.

Equipment failure, emergency repairs elsewhere and Amtrak work at the railroad crossing are to blame, according to a Michigan Department of Transportation press release.

The railroad crossing closed on Oct. 30, detouring traffic from Cooper Street to Franklin Street to Francis Street. MDOT is making changes at the intersection to accommodate for two-way traffic on Louis Glick Highway.

A firm date hasn’t been set for the reopening of E. Michigan Avenue at the crossing, per MDOT.
