Drivers using the Interstate-94/I-69 interchange will face multiple ramp closures beginning Saturday, Aug. 13, as work to rebuild I-69 between Marshall and Charlotte continues.
The ramps from eastbound I-94 to southbound I-69, and from southbound I-69 to westbound I-94 will be closed and rebuilt, the Michigan Department of Transportation announced Monday. The work is part of MDOT's $210-million effort to rebuild 25 miles of highway between Marshall and Charlotte.
Ramp closures are expected to continue through Sept. 16. MDOT is advising drivers to seek alternate routes.
MDOT began reconstructing I-69 from south of I-94 in Calhoun County to Island Highway in Eaton County in 2021. Work is expected to be complete in November 2023.
Funding for the project is made possible by the Rebuilding Michigan program to reconstruct the state highways and bridges that are critical to the state's economy and carry the most traffic. The investment strategy is aimed at fixes that result in longer useful lives and improves the condition of the state's infrastructure, MDOT officials said.
