GRAND RAPIDS TOWNSHIP, Mich. (WOOD) – A public open house will be held to discuss reconstruction of the I-96 and Cascade Road interchange.
The Michigan Department of Transportation and Grand Rapids Township officials will be taking question and comments on Monday, Feb. 2 from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. at Heather Hills Care Center located at 1157 Medical Park Drive SE.
MDOT plans on making the interchange a diverging diamond interchange. The project includes reconstruction of Cascade Road between Cascade West Parkway and Kenmoor Avenue, and replacing the Cascade Road bridge over I-96 with two bridges, according to a MDOT news release.
In 2009, the Missouri Department of Transportation claims accidents have decreased by 53 percent and 87 percent of drivers surveyed report that they feel safer in the diverging diamond interchange than in the previous configuration.
