The closure is part of a $3.9 million MDOT project to remove and replace the original Cutler Road bridge over the highway. MDOT is also investing $5.5 million into fixing and resurfacing approximately 9.5 miles of I-96, from Sunfield Road to the Ionia-Clinton county line.
Cutler Road over I-96 will remain closed through mid-October. Drivers are encouraged to follow the posted detour onto Grand River Avenue, Peake Road and Monroe Avenue.
