LANSING TOWNSHIP:
WAVERLY ROAD

- Old Lansing Road to St. Joseph Street.  Reconstruction with asphalt pavement, new non-motorized path on east side crossing to west side on north side of I-496 / Waverly Road interchange.  Project to be constructed in conjunction with MDOT resurfacing project on I-496 between I-96/I-69 interchange and Main Street/Lansing Road interchange.  Both the  Waverly Road and I-496 projects are being constructed half at a time with traffic maintained per posted detours for portions under construction in given stage.  The projects expected to be completed by late fall. 


Waverly Road through traffic has been detoured between Lansing Road and St Joseph as posted.

July 2020 Update:
Waverly Road is expected to remain closed to all traffic at the railroad crossing north of Lansing Road to approximately the end of July  dependent on weather and contractor progress, while asphalt pavement is placed south of I-496 and up to St. Joseph Street in the northbound (east half) lanes.  Currently, one lane of traffic is maintained in each direction between Home Depot and St. Joseph Street.  Businesses north of the RR crossing are accessible from St. Joseph Street. 

 Starting approximately August 3, it is anticipated that Waverly Rd will be reopened to southbound through traffic (on the new northbound (east side) lanes), with the northbound traffic detour at Lansing Rd (via Lansing Rd, Main St, and St Joseph Street) remaining in effect through the remainder of major road work.

 Substantial completion of Waverly Road and the shared use path between Old Lansing Road and St. Joseph Street  is anticipated by late August, at which time the northbound detour will be lifted.   Remainder of the work (such as turf restoration, signing, clean-up, etc.) is expected to be completed with single lane closures.

On I-496, the eastbound side is now completed and re-opened and the westbound side is now closed and under construction between I-96 and Lansing Road.  Again the detour route is Lansing Road between I-96 and I-496.  Visit the following MDOT project link for further information and updates on the I-496 project:
