GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) — The I-96 entrance ramp on Plainfield Avenue has reopened after months of construction.

The project was scheduled to be completed on Sept. 13, but was delayed by a labor dispute between the organization that represents the owners of road construction companies and the union that represents heavy equipment operators. Westbound lanes of I-96 were reopened on Sept. 14, but the entrance ramp at Plainfield Avenue remained closed until Wednesday.

Construction on westbound I-96 between Plainfield Avenue and US-131 started in early July, causing traffic backups along the detour route all summer long.
