GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) — The Michigan Department of Transportation will be installing cable guardrail on I-96 and I-196 to increase safety and prevent cross-median crashes.
Crews will begin installing the cable guardrail on I-196 from Chicago Drive to east of Market Avenue, and on I-96 from the Kent/Ionia county line to M-66 starting July 8.
One lane of traffic will be open in each direction at all times.
MDOT hopes to have the entire project completed by September 25.
Median cable guardrails are expected to reduce cross-median crashes by an estimated 90 percent, according to MDOT.
