The Michigan Department of Transportation, county road commissions, and municipalities have sporadically observed the governor's stay-at-home executive orders, postponing some road projects where it was determined that workers would have a difficult time observing distance from one another.

Work on some major projects, such as the one at the interchange of I-96/I-196/East Beltline, have not resumed. But schedules are looking busy in the near term.

Here's what's happening soon:

Kent County

  • Peach Ridge Avenue closed just north of 13 Mile for culvert replacement Apr. 20 – May 8.

  • Nighttime lane closures on US-131 at the KL Avenue bridge Apr. 22-30.
  • Ramp closed from Stadium Drive to northbound US-131 Apr. 22-30. Detour: Enter from W. Main St. M-43.
  • KL Avenue under US-131 occasionally closed Apr. 22-30. Detour: Stadium Drive via 11th St. And Drake Rd.
