Truckers traveling eastbound through Michigan along I-96 will have to take a detour beginning Friday, April 20, through mid-June due to a construction project.

The Michigan Department of Transportation says I-96 Eastbound will close at Alpine Avenue (Michigan Highway 37) to reconstruct the interstate between West River Drive and the Grand River, as well as bridge improvements over U.S. Highway 131, the Grand River, Coit Avenue, Monroe Avenue and West River Drive.

After the work on I-96 Eastbound is complete, MDOT will close I-96 Westbound in the same area from mid-June through mid-August.

MDOT says traffic can exit I-96 at Alpine Avenue or take U.S. 131 Southbound to I-196 Eastbound to I-96 Eastbound.
