CASCADE, Mich. — Pavement repairs have been ongoing on I-96 in eastern Kent County, but mostly at night. This week, they are round the clock, and it’s slowing traffic.

Tuesday morning, traffic was backed up and stop-and-go on eastbound I-96 to 28th Street. Traffic westbound was very slow through the lane closure.
