West Michigan Construction:
BETWEEN SARANAC AND IONIA:
96 between Nash Highway (Exit 59) and M-66 (Exit 67).
Eastbound is down to one lane — westbound has both lanes open.
Concrete repairs, through next week — expect frequent re-configurations.
North of Lowell:
Lincoln Lake Ave. between 3-Mile Rd. and McPherson St.
Closing for reconstruction — starting this week, until the end of July.
Easiest detour is Alden Nash Ave. between Bailey Dr. and either 3-Mile or 4-Mile.
Ball Ave. is CLOSED from Leonard St. north to Spencer St., until Friday.
Traffic signal upgrade — detour to Fuller, using Knapp.
Fuller Ave. is down to one lane both ways over the Ford.
On-ramp to eastbound is closed.
Westbound off-ramp is “right turn only.”
Breton Ave. is OPEN between 28th and Burton Sts., but down to one lane both ways for resurfacing.
Eastern Ave. and Hall St. intersection is CLOSED all four ways.
Eastern is scheduled to open on Friday — Hall will stay closed for resurfacing until mid-June.
Between Otsego and Allegan:
M-89 between the Kalamazoo River and 28th St.
Resurfacing — both sides wait and take turns in a single lane, with flaggers, starting this week, until the end of July.
Keep in mind — M-222 is CLOSED just east of downtown Allegan, and M-40 has resurfacing south of Allegan.
96 is down to one lane both ways at 28th St., until Memorial Day.
Eastbound loop off-ramp to eastbound 28th is closed — M-DOT says they’ve rigged the FIRST off-ramp to turn left temporarily.
If you miss it, keep going to 36th St. — and take Kraft Ave. to 28th.
HART AND PENTWATER:
US-31 between Polk Rd. (Exit 149) and Monroe Rd. (Exit 154).
Reconstruction — lanes, ramps and bridges closing, to the end of September.
Southbound is down to one lane at Monroe, until Friday — bridge is closed, and southbounders use the off- and on-ramps.
