Scroll to the bottom of Gary's link and they show 2006 - 2009. I just don't understand why they don't have re-surfacing of I-196 East of downtown on there. They even mention the bridge work on I-196 that needs to be done, and how that section is 40 YEARS OLD, but no mention of resurfacing :angry:

Hehe, I like to think of it as the only time people on the west side get to experience off-road conditions in their SUVs :rofl:

These are the long-term plans for I-196 from downtown east through the junction with I-96. I think they were linked on UP previously, but for what it's worth:

http://www.michigan.gov/mdot/0,1607,7-151-...01916--,00.html

I have it from a traffic engineer friend that this will get built within 5-10 years when the money is available. There will be various preparatory bridge improvements sooner, though.

Hey, now that the $223 million bridge-to-nowhere in Alaska has been cancelled by Congress, maybe GR can get some of that money! :P

No 31 bypass... Granholm blew that one. The Feds were offering a one time 50% match, then she went and pissed the money away in Detroit. Now a project that could have cost $250 million will turn into another M-6 and easily run above $1 billion when it is built. Land values are already skyrocketing along the path in anticipation of huge government payouts.

Stupid government, you would think that M-6 would have taught them a lesson. If you are not positve that a project is not starting SOON, do not release details. The great majority of the cost in building M-6 was due to over inflated land values along the route.
