LANSING, Mich. (WILX) – After five months of reconstruction, eastbound I-496 is back open.
The first half of the state’s 496 Pave the Way project is now complete.
The interstate opened up to traffic just after noon Friday from the Creyts Road entrance.
The Michigan Department of Transportation said the entrance ramp from westbound I-96, as well as entrance and exit ramps on Waverly Road, will be closed for at least another week.
The second half of this big construction project is set to begin Monday now that westbound I-496 is closed west of Lansing Road.
