For the past few months, anyone headed east on I-96 at Alpine Avenue has dealt with detours and delays.

The good news is that MDOT says eastbound I-96 should reopen Monday, July 2 after 10p.m., but then the second half of the project begins...

WZZM-13 reports that westbound I-96 at Plainfield Avenue is expected to close sometime Thusday, July 5, at approximately 8p.m. through August 30.

Drivers will be detoured west on I-196 from the East Beltline to downtown Grand Rapids, then north on US-131 to I-96.
