I-96 Reduced To Two Lanes In Oakland Co Starting June 7, 2022

Wixom, MI - The I-96 Flex Route project will be moving into the next phase, which will shift part of eastbound I-96 traffic from Kent Lake Road to Wixom Road across the median until late fall. During the traffic shift, there will be two lanes open in each direction on the westbound side of I-96.

Beginning 6 a.m. Tuesday, June 7, eastbound I-96 will be reduced to two lanes approaching Kent Lake Road and then shifted across the median to the westbound lanes. 

As part of the traffic shift, the follow ramps will be closed until late fall:

- The northbound and southbound Kent Lake Road ramps to eastbound I-96,

- The eastbound I-96 exit to Milford Road,

- The northbound and southbound Milford Road ramps to eastbound I-96, and

- The eastbound I-96 exit to Wixom Road

Westbound I-96 will continue to have two lanes open from Wixom to Kent Lake roads with all on/off ramps open. 

Based on economic modeling, the I-96 Flex Route project and its $269 million investment is expected to directly and indirectly support 3,429 jobs. 

There may be additional changes to this stretch of the project, for up-to-date information on the I-96 Flex Route, go to DrivingOakland.org.
