Last week, I had the unfortunate experience of forgetting about the I-96 construction zone between Lowell and Cascade.  It made my return trip from the Tiger game a little longer than necessary.

Take my advice -- plan around this week's slow downs.  

A left lane closure for pavement repair will be in place 8 p.m. Friday through 5 a.m. Monday, May 19 on eastbound I-96 from just west of Thornapple River Drive to just west of Whitneyville Avenue.  This is in addition to the westbound I-96 closure in that same area.  This project will repair pavement along I-96 from Thornapple River Drive to the Kent/Ionia county line, and is scheduled for completion in mid-August.  

The work is weather dependent.
