When work is completed there will be three westbound lanes and the auxiliary lane connecting the Marquette Interchange with the Stadium Interchange.
The work scheduled for this spring will restore the second lane for I-794 westbound while maintaining the improvements along I-43 southbound to I-94 westbound.
The work that took place in spring 2012 improved the traffic backups along I-43 but resulted in unacceptable delays along I-794, according to a release.
There will be a single lane closure along I-94 westbound beginning on March 4 and running until mid-April. Additional off-peak, overnight and weekend work will continue until mid-May. Eastbound traffic will see some impacts due to median work that is required. There will be no lane closures eastbound.
