Eastbound and westbound I-96 traffic have been switched over to the new eastbound I-96 lanes and each direction is separated by a barrier wall. 

The following ramps are now open:

— New off-ramp from eastbound I-96 to 120th Avenue/M-104 (Cleveland Street)

— New off-ramp from eastbound I-96 to 112th Avenue

— Ramp from eastbound M-104 to eastbound I-96

— The ramp from westbound I-96 to 112th Avenue will remain open.

Eastbound M-104/Cleveland Street is closed at I-96. Traffic will be directed onto eastbound I-96, where they can exit at 112th Avenue or continue on eastbound I-96.

This next phase of construction will remain in place through November, the state agency said.

I can't wait for Robinson and Crockery Townships to join forces, with the connection of a bypass. I bet the bridge fishing will spawn!

Lets see if it does what it is designed and/or suppose to do, and reduce the twenty-five thousand cars going daily speeding thru the small Village and Township by ten percent?
The road God says so, but realistically?

yep, not sure how much it will actually reduce traffic, but it sure will be convenient for me.

I guarantee you people headed to the beach from all points east will avoid Spring Lake at all costs. The bridge will be used, and will relieve traffic slightly, but Spring Lake HAS to do something about the single lane. Maybe two lanes one way (west) until 3pm, then switching two lanes the opposite way with no left turns on Savidge St?
And, btw Zeg, your numbers must be low. I live on Mercury Dr and OCRC annual count is 28,000- 32,000 cars a day here! And I do suspect that will increase dramatically. Do you hear that City of Grand Haven? Better raise that speed limit on Waverly to 35.
