The Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT) is closing the Jackson Rd (Old US-12) bridge over I-94 for resurfacing.
The project is expected to end on April 30, 2021.
Ramps will remain open.
The new overlay and epoxy being applied will seal cracks and increase pavement friction. The project was originally budgeted for 2022 and comes a year early.
MDOT suggests these detours:
Westbound: Take I-94 WB to M-52, exit the freeway and get back on I-94 EB, and exit at Old US-12/Jackson Road.
Eastbound: I-94EB to Baker Road, exit the freeway and get back on I-94 WB ad exit at Old US-12/Jackson Road.

Stark Rd bike path to connect Livonia to Hines Dr

Published on: 8/7/2020
Next year, it'll be a little easier to be a cyclist in Livonia.

In partnership with St. Mary Mercy Hospital and Healthy Livonia, the city plans to build a biking path or lane along Stark Road. The planned pathway would stretch between the Stark Road recreation area, which includes Ford Field, and would lead into Hines Parkway.

Once on the Hines trail, cyclists can head into Northville, Westland, Plymouth or Dearborn Heights.

“I think Hines is a pretty popular area and something we want to link up to in our regional trail network," said Ted Davis, the city's parks and recreation superintendent.

Unlike some of the city's popular park trails, like those at Rotary Park or Clements Circle, the Stark Road pathway would connect cyclists to a larger trail network. The project is park of the city's Bike and Walk Plan, which is meant to foster more non-motor travel throughout the city.
