Part of M-6 Closing for Four Months in July
With construction season upon us, we now know when the one of West Michigan's big project starts.
MLive reports that a nearly four mile stretch of M-6 will close for repairs for four months starting July 8.
M-6 was completed in 2004, and was expected to not need major repairs until 2022. After deteriorating faster than anticipated, the Michigan Department of Transportation announced in February that the crumbling concrete on M-6 would be replaced this summer.
On July 8, both Eastbound and Westbound lanes of M-6 between I-196 and Byron Center Avenue will close. The concrete will be removed and replaced with asphalt.
According to MLive, Truck traffic will be routed on U.S. 131 through downtown. Through traffic coming from the east on I-96 will be detoured away from M-6 near the east side of Grand Rapids.
MDOT will hold a public meeting June 28 4 to 6p.m. at the Byron Township Hall to share more details on the project.
