Bridge Repairs Start Next Week on Bridges Over I-96
You might see some traffic backups over the next several weeks on I-96 as the Michigan Department of Transportation announced that they have a couple of bridge repair projects scheduled from late March through May. According to their press release, MDOT is investing around "$8 million to perform critical preventive maintenance and repair work on seven bridges over I-96 and two I-96 bridges over M-52 in Ingham County."
MDOT says that bridge repair work is scheduled to continue with the Zimmer Road bridge starting on Tuesday, March 24th and will continue through May. MDOT says that "Zimmer Road will be closed over I-96 and detoured. I-96 traffic will be maintained with a traffic shift under Zimmer Road. Expect periodic nighttime lane closures throughout the project duration. An alternate route is advised." They also have other bridge projects coming up in the near future that include Meridian Road, Williamston Road, Elm Road, Wallace Road, and the two I-96 bridges over M-52.
