MDOT is holding a virtual public meeting to discuss the I-496 project in Lansing

LANSING, Michigan (WILX) – The Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT) has invited the public to a virtual public meeting on the upcoming reconstruction of I-496 from Lansing Road to the Grand River in Lansing City.

Work is currently scheduled to begin in 2022.

During this virtual meeting there will be a (short) presentation, followed by a question and answer session. Questions can be asked during the meeting using the chat function. Funding for this project is made possible through the Michigan Reconstruction Program, which aims to rebuild the most heavily trafficked highways and bridges that are essential to the state’s economy.

The investment strategy is to focus on fixes that result in longer useful life and improve the state of government infrastructure.

The virtual meeting will take place on Wednesday, March 31st at 4 p.m. Anyone interested in participating can do so from this link from Microsoft Teams.

Public contributions are requested to help MDOT address any concerns that may arise from the project. The organizers have asked for public comments to be submitted by April 19th. Michiganders can send any concerns or comments about this project in relation to the project through the online comment form, email, or phone to MDOT Public Participation Specialist and Hearing Officer Monica Monsma at [email protected] or 517-335-4381 .
