April 1 - August 30, westbound I-196 will be closed downtown over the Grand River with ramp closures in that interchange. Closed ramps are US-131 southbound to eastbound I-196, and US-131 northbound to westbound I-196. Many people will need to take alternate routes to church all Summer. Our city is adding a lane over the Grand River.
All westbound traffic on I-196 will have to exit on Fuller, College, or Ottawa Ave. The Michigan Department of Transportation’s (MDOT) recommended detour is to take I-96 West to US-131 South to I-196 beyond the construction. You will then be able to reach our exit at Lake Michigan Drive.
