GRAND RAPIDS (WZZM)-Drivers beware: a new construction project on a Grand Rapids thoroughfare is about to begin.
The Michigan Department of Transportation is closing the ramp from southbound U.S. 131 to westbound I-196 at 7 a.m. Saturday. The ramp is expected to remain closed for about two weeks as crews finish maintenance work.
Drivers are encouraged to continue traveling south on U.S. 131 and exit at Market Avenue. Drivers should then turn left (north) onto Market Avenue, left onto northbound U.S. 131 and left onto westbound I-196.
