CASCADE TOWNSHIP, Mich. — The project to rebuild I-96 eastbound and westbound around M-6 progresses, and there will be changes in what ramps you can use.

The ramp from eastbound M-6 to eastbound I-96, closed since the beginning of the project, will be opened at 2 p.m. Tuesday, July 12.

But the ramp from M-6 westbound to I-96 westbound will be closing at the same time. The ramp will remain closed until the project is completed in October.

Then the ramp from eastbound I-96 to westbound M-6 will open at 7 p.m. Tuesday, July 12.

More important changes will take place on Monday, July 19:

  • The MDOT schedule indicates all traffic will move from the westbound pavement to the newly built eastbound pavement. Eastbound will have two lanes; westbound will have one lane. 
  • The ramp from westbound I-96 to westbound M-6 will be closed on July 19. 

The ramp from 36th Street to eastbound I-96 remains closed until October 22.
