JACKSON, Mich. (WILX) - Beginning Monday, May 3, and ending Friday, May 7, the Michigan Department of Transportation will close the left lane of westbound I-94 between Elm Avenue and Airport Road in Jackson.

The closure is to prepare for a shift of traffic from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. and remove the guardrail and barriers. Motorists are advised to seek alternate routes during this time.

The I-94 Road and Bridge Reconstruction, Jackson County project is rebuilding nearly 8 miles of I-94 in Blackman Township and Leoni Township.

The $120 million investment supports over 1,500 jobs. The goal is to balance safety, mobility, lifecycle costs, aesthetics, and environmental sustainability.

The project is being completed in three phases with Monday’s traffic shift part of Phase 2. That phase runs from March of this year until June 2023.

The stretch of the freeway being worked on is a significant local, national, and international trade corridor.
