HOLLAND, Michigan — The Michigan Department of Transportation will begin construction on more than three miles of westbound I-196 in Holland beginning Thursday, July 29. The project will include resurfacing, joint replacement and new guardrails.

One lane of westbound traffic will be relocated to the eastbound side of the roadway east of M-40 during construction. Westbound I-196 ramps to and from M-40 will be closed and traffic will be detoured.
