Construction Updates

I-496

In 2022, I-496 will be closed and detoured starting June 2, 2022 through early November 2022 with detour routes on Malcolm X and St. Joseph beginning at M-99 to the Grand River.  Bridges will also be under construction during 2022.  At this time, the River Trail should not be impacted.  In 2023, traffic will be maintained with one lane in each direction and most of the bridgework will be completed.

Okemos Road

The southbound Okemos road detour is scheduled to begin on February 14, 2022 and will continue until November 2022 for the replacement of the Okemos Road bridge over the Red Cedar River between Mt. Hope Road and Clinton Street. Southbound Okemos Road traffic will be detoured via Grand River Avenue (M-43), Dobie Road and Jolly Road.

Northbound Okemos Road traffic will be maintained throughout construction except for a brief period to accommodate construction staging.  The pedestrian truss on the west side of Okemos Road will remain in place, however pedestrian traffic may be restricted during periods of construction.

This project also includes upgrading traffic signals at the following Okemos Road intersections: Hamilton Road, Mt. Hope Road, Science Parkway, Bennett Road/Kinawa Road, and Tamarack Drive. The traffic signal work along Okemos Rd began in November 2021 and is ongoing. Relocation of utilities near the bridge has begun and will continue throughout the construction phase.
