GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. — Slow traffic will be the rule on one of Kent County’s primary non-expressway arteries as a repaving project begins Monday night.

Meanwhile, drivers on I-96 can expect slowdowns in both directions in Ionia County.

The Plainfield Avenue project begins Monday night. The first lane closures will be in effect through Wednesday:

  • Right lane closed southbound from Airway Street to 4 Mile Road
  • Two lanes will be opened mornings 6 a.m. to 9 a.m. and afternoons 3 p.m. to 6 p.m.

Lane closures on eastbound I-96 in Ionia County have already caused daily slowdowns in midday. This week, both directions will be affected and in effect through Thursday:

  • Eastbound I-96: Right lane closed from Kent County line to Nash Highway exit 59.
  • Westbound I-96: Left lane closed from Jordan Lake Avenue exit 64 to Nash Highway exit 59.
