Ramp closed along I-94

Posted at 5:01 PM, Jul 26, 2019

JACKSON, Mich. — More construction in Jackson--this project is on I-94.

The Elm Road entrance ramp connection to I-94 shut down Thursday night and will stay closed until Sunday.

The closure is part of MDOT's $110 million I-94 corridor project.

The ramp is expected to be back open Sunday at 11 a.m.

Phase one of the entire project is expected to be wrapped up by the end of the year, or early next year.

The entire project isn't expected to be finished until 2021.

According to MDOT, the project began in 2018 and included projects like reconstructing 1.4 miles of freeway between Lansing Avenue and Elm Road, resurfacing 3.5 miles between Lansing Avenue and M-60, and resurfacing 4 miles between Elm Road and Sargent Road, and rebuilding and redesigning the I-94 and Cooper Street interchange, including the addition of new roundabouts on each side of the new bridge and reconstructing each of the ramps.

MDOT says I-94 will be shifted approximately 60 feet south of it's current location as part of the project.
