Michigan’s construction season continues next week with more than 130 new road and bridge projects requiring some type of lane closure around the state.
Among the projects that will have impacts on traffic between Monday and Friday, June 12-16, include work on M-50 in Jackson, I-94 in Kalamazoo, I-375 in Detroit, and U.S. 31 in Manistee County.
Below are some of the road projects getting underway this week, based on the Michigan Department of Transportation’s construction schedule.
M-50 in Jackson County
Construction on M-50 in Jackson County is scheduled to begin Monday and stretch through Aug. 18. The area to be resurfaced runs from Valley Farm Road to Lincoln Road in Jackson.
During the project, one lane will be maintained utilizing traffic regulators. Officials said the work will result in smoother and safer shoulders as well.
M-227 in Calhoun County
Construction on M-227 (17 Mile Road) will begin Monday in Calhoun County as workers prepare to repave 2.7 miles of road from Woolley Drive to F Drive South in Fredonia Township.
The project, which will cost the state about $631,000, has an expected end date of Aug. 31. Until then, drivers should expect lane closures and traffic regulators in the area.
I-94 in Kalamazoo County
A stretch of I-94 BL in both directions will be closed from M-96 to Olmstead Road beginning 9 a.m. Monday and continuing for about two weeks.
Drivers will be detoured using River Street and M-96 (Kings Highway).
Not far south from there, I-94 will continue to have its left lane closed from Westnedge Avenue to Portage Road, and from Sprinkle Road to Lovers Lane. Work on I-94 in the area will continue into late July.
