This is one of the biggest road construction projects in west Michigan -- and it's only just getting started. We're talking about road work near East Beltline and I-96 and I-196.
John Richard at MDOT tells WOOD Radio, eventually both freeways will be wider in this area and the days of eastbound I-96 crossing eastbound I-196 to exit the Beltline will be over. They are calling this project "the flip."
MDOT Grand Region Communications Representative John Richard hosts this look inside the upcoming 2019 project to make improvements at the I-96/I-196 interchange in Grand Rapids, including "flipping" some of the ramp overpasses. View above.
