BYRON TOWNSHIP, Mich. — The closure of M-6 looms in July, and more than 40,000 drivers a day will need to find a way around the project. To answer questions about closure schedules and detours, the Michigan Department of Transportation will hold a public meeting Wednesday:
M-6 Construction Meeting
Wednesday, June 28
4 p.m. – 6 p.m.
Byron Township Hall
8085 Byron Center Ave.
Representatives and engineers from MDOT and the road commissions in Kent and Ottawa counties will be there.
The project includes both directions of M-6 between I-196 and Wilson Avenue, and construction is expected to begin the weekend after the July 4th holiday.
The anticipated detour for any closure is to use US-131 between M-6 and I-196 in downtown Grand Rapids and use I-196 between M-6 and US-131 in downtown Grand Rapids.
