Traffic Tom: Westbound I-96 in GR to close Thursday

Grand Rapids

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) — As work along eastbound I-96 comes to an end, it means it’s time to close the westbound lanes.

Westbound I-96 is scheduled to close at Plainfield Avenue in Grand Rapids at 7 p.m. Thursday, July 5.

The freeway will be closed from Plainfield to Alpine avenues, which means drivers along southbound US-131 will not be able to exit onto westbound I-96.

The posted detour for drivers on westbound I-96 will be to take westbound I-196 into downtown Grand Rapids then head north on US-131 to reconnect with westbound I-96.

The closure is scheduled to run through early September.
