Here's what to expect with the WB 196 construction

Construction on 1-96 in Grand Rapids starts next week

GRAND RAPIDS, MICH. - The WB 196 expansion project over the Grand River is just getting started, but most of the major closures will not happen until 2018.

However, Wednesday, Sept. 6 the SB 131 ramp to EB 196 will be closed for a month. 

The project will take three years and cost upward of $21 million. 

The Big Bridge, built in 1964, will receive a deck replacement and overlay, but this will require the shutdown of I-196 WB in the future.
