Michigan DOT Sets New Timeline for I-94 Project

Sept. 12, 2023
The project is expected to be completed by mid-October

The Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT) is expanding two projects in the Kalamazoo area.

The Interstate 94 project, which is widening I-94 to six lanes, and the rebuilding of the Portage Road Interchange are both expected to be completed by mid-October.

According to MDOT, part of the remaining project is to finish the eastbound I-94 lanes from Lovers Lane to Sprinkle Road.

The eastbound lanes of I-94 will get the shoulders repaved and guardrails replaced that were damaged by crashes.

According to MDOT, all three eastbound lanes are expected to be completed by September 30.

Motorists should expect some closures of eastbound I-94, to hang signs over the travel lanes during construction. Law enforcement will assist with the closures.

According to MDOT, the Portage Road paving is expected to be completed by September 25. After, all that will be left will be completing the interchange ramps on Portage Road with new traffic signals, expected to be completed in October.

These three-year projects have a price tag of $87 million.
