What is Being Done?
The Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT) is planning a major project on a 7-mile stretch of I-96 from Newburgh Road in the city of Livonia to Telegraph Road in Redford Township. Work includes reconstructing the road and repairing 37 bridges, including on and off ramps. The project will bring the corridor current design standards and improve safety. Clearances at the 37 bridges/overpasses also will be increased to improve safety.
MDOT is currently planning and designing the project, and is gathering public input on potential construction impact on the community.
Construction of this $150 million project could being in late 2013.
