Interstate 96 (I-96) is an intrastate Interstate Highway that is entirely within the U.S. state of Michiganmarker. Its western terminus is at an interchange with US-31 and US-31 BR, on the western boundary of Norton Shoresmarker southeast of Muskegonmarker. Its eastern terminus is at I-75 near the Ambassador Bridgemarker in Detroitmarker. From Detroit to Grand Rapidsmarker, it parallels Grand River Avenue, never straying more than a few miles from the deleted US-16.

The Wayne Countymarker portion of I-96 was originally named the Jeffries Freeway from its eastern terminus to the junction with I-275 and M-14 and was signed as such until Michigan removed proper names from Interstate guide signs in the 1980s. Though many area residents still refer to the freeway as "The Jeffries," the portion within the city of Detroit was renamed by the state legislature as the Rosa Parks Memorial Highway in December, 2005.

Route description

I-96 east at Davison Avenue, the east end of the local/express split
Interstate 96 begins with a 3/4 cloverleaf interchange with U.S. 31 in Norton Shores, Michiganmarker, near Muskegonmarker. From the start, the highway has a grassy median and 2 lanes in each direction. I-96 starts off by traveling southeast for a distance of around until it reaches Nunicamarker. At this point, it turns in an east-southeastern direction for 25 total miles until it reaches the city of Grand Rapidsmarker. Shortly before reaching Grand Rapids, I-96 intersects U.S. Route 131 and crosses over the Grand River for the first time. About after passing US-131, I-96 travels south for around until the junction with Interstate 196, a branch route of I-96 which begins in Grand Rapids and terminates at Interstate 94 near Benton Harbormarker. For the next , I-96 travels in a southeast direction. During this section, the highway currently has weave merge lanes which expand the freeway to 4 lanes at points. After leaving Grand Rapids, I-96 runs due east for approximately . I-96 then turns southeast near Portlandmarker, crosses over the Grand River for a second time, and continues in a southeast direction for . I-96 then merges with Interstate 69 outside of Lansingmarker, and the two highways are co-signed for the next traveling due south. While I-96 is co-signed with I-69, Interstate 496 branches off the highway and travels through Lansing until it meets I-96 again south of Lansing. After I-69 splits off I-96 southwest of Lansing, I-96 has a short leg where it travels southeast, after which it travels east-southeast for approximately . Near Farmingtonmarker, I-96 turns southward and merges with Interstate 275; Interstate 696 branches off at this junction and runs east to Interstate 94. I-96 is co-signed with I-275 for about . In Livoniamarker, I-96 splits off of I-275 and turns eastward towards Detroit. After the Outer Drive exit, express lanes begin in both directions. Three miles from where I-96 enters Detroitmarker is a massive interchange with M-39/Southfield Freeway, which is called "Malfunction Junction" by some locals. I-96 turns southeast here and enters Detroit, where it becomes known as the Rosa Parks Memorial Freeway. I-96 intersects Interstate 94 within Detroit. Two miles after the I-94 interchange, I-96 reaches its eastern terminus at Interstate 75/Fisher Freeway.

Lane configurations

  • between western terminus and I-196 (2 lanes on each side)
  • between I-196 and M-21 (3 lanes on each side; the right-most of the 3 eastbound lanes is actually an auxiliary lane connecting the on-ramp from 196 with the off-ramp to M-21)
  • between M-21 and milepost 86 (2 lanes on each side)
  • between milepost 86 and north-end merge with I-69 (3 WB, 2 EB lanes)

  • transition from I-696 onto I-275 (2 through lanes each way)
  • concurrent with I-275 (4 lanes on each side, very short segment of 5 each side on approach to I-696/I-275/M-5 interchange)
  • ramps carrying I-96 from I-275 to Jeffries Freeway (2 lanes on each side)
  • between M-14 and Outer Drive (4 lanes on each side)
  • between Outer Drive and Davison Avenue (2+ local, 3 express; on each side)
  • between Davison Avenue and eastern terminus (4 lanes on each side)
  • See M-5 for the lane configurations of the leftover stub after I-96 joins I-275.


History

Interstate 96 was mostly constructed in sections that opened from 1957 to 1962, but it was not completed in the Detroit area until 1977. Even before the National Interstate and Defense Highways Act was signed in 1956, the route was being planned as a replacement of the old U.S. Highway 16, which was deleted in 1962.

Beginnings

The Lake Michiganmarker-Grand Rapidsmarker-Lansingmarker-Detroitmarker corridor was initially the Grand River Trail, an Indian trail that was designated as a military highway in 1832. Detroit changed the name of its portion of the road to Grand River Avenue in 1871, a name which soon spread along the rest of the route. It became M-16 in 1918, and was the first paved highway across the state when paving was completed in 1926. The entire highway was designated as part of US-16 later that year.

1958 numbering plan for Michigan's Interstates
East of Grand Rapids, the highway was a major artery of national importance, and was added to the proposed "Interregional Highway System" as part of a northern route between Chicagomarker and Detroit by the 1940s. A branch from Grand Rapids to Muskegon was added later that decade, and in 1957 the Chicago-Detroit route was labeled as part of Interstate 94, with Interstate 94N on the spur to Muskegon. Michigan, believing that this would "cause considerable confusion to the public", requested a change in April 1958, which would move I-94 to the shorter Kalamazoomarker route (which was planned as I-92), make the Muskegon-Kalamazoo route I-96, and assign I-67 to the connection from I-94 to I-96 at Grand Rapids, but this was initially rejected by the American Association of State Highway Officials (AASHO). By early 1959, Michigan's plan had been approved, with one change: I-96 would take the south leg from I-94 at Benton Harbormarker to Grand Rapids, and the north leg to Muskegon would be I-196.

Construction of the Brighton-Farmington Expressway piece of the US-16 upgrade began in 1956, and, when a four-mile (6 km) piece opened on August 1, 1957, it was the first section of funded Interstate to open in Michigan. The entire 23-mile (37 km) expressway from east of Brightonmarker to a bypass of Farmingtonmarker was completed in December of that year. By early 1959, when signs for I-96 and I-196 were posted, of the "Detroit-Muskegon Freeway" had been completed and marked as US-16. With the opening of 51 miles (82 km) from west of Lansing to east of Howellmarker, the entire route, except in the Detroit area, was opened for travel on December 12, 1962. US-16 was deleted at that time; the portions into Muskegon and Detroit, beyond the ends of the freeway, became Interstate 196 Business and Interstate 96 Business.

In 1963, the Michigan State Highway Department petitioned AASHO to again make the change it had requested back in 1958, moving I-96 over I-196 to end at Muskegon and renumbering I-96 west of Grand Rapids to I-67. The state cited problems with destination signing and numerous complaints from the public about confusion caused by the numbering. At their October 21, 1963 meeting, AASHO approved the relocation of I-96, but rejected I-67, stating that the number should be kept for a more major route in case the system is expanded, and instead assigned I-196 to the not-yet-complete Benton Harbor-Grand Rapids route. ( , I-67 is the largest odd number not in use.) With the completion of the Lodge Freeway on October 29, 1964, a full freeway route was available from I-96 into downtown Detroit via I-696 and the Lodge, but it would be some time before I-96 was finished into the city.

Construction of the Jeffries Freeway

The Detroit Expressway and Transit System plan, prepared in 1945 for the city of Detroit, included a Grand River Expressway, which was to parallel Grand River Avenue into downtown and relieve congestion on that artery. A rail line would be built in the median of the freeway west of West Chicago Street, where streetcars would exit onto the existing surface tracks on Grand River Avenue into downtown. The plan called for a future conversion to rapid transit with a grade-separated route to downtown. The Department of Street Railways determined in 1947 that the operation would cost $6 million per year, and the planned transit line was dropped from the plans. By 1961, the proposed highway was renamed the Jeffries Freeway, after Edward Jeffries, who served as Detroit mayor from 1940 to 1948.

The first piece of the Jeffries Freeway connected the Fisher Freeway (I-75) with the Ford Freeway (I-94) in 1970. It was extended northwest to Livernois Avenue (exit 188A) in 1971, and then to Grand River Avenue at Schaefer Highway (exit 185) in 1973. In 1976, the freeway was extended west to the Southfield Freeway (exit 183), and the entire I-275 overlap section was opened. The final piece was completed in 1977, connecting the Detroit section to I-275.

Originally, the route of Interstate 96 from the east end of the existing freeway in Farmington through Detroit, named the Jeffries Freeway (commonly referred to as simply "the Jeffries"), was to closely parallel Grand River Avenue (formerly U.S. 16). However, by 1963, several freeway revolts were taking place in urban locations throughout the country, including Detroit. Several of Detroit's planned freeways were modified, scaled back, or outright cancelled, and the Jeffries was no exception. To minimize the impact to existing communities and businesses, it was decided that the freeway would no longer utilize the Grand River Avenue corridor. Instead, the new Interstate 96 freeway corridor would partially use the C&O Railroad right of way through the city of Livonia, and utilize the planned Interstate 275 freeway bypassing Detroit to the west to connect back to the existing freeway.

The Jeffries Freeway (not yet signed as Interstate 96) was opened in stages in the early-1970s. The first two segments, opened in 1970 and 1971, connected Interstate 75 to Interstate 94, and Interstate 94 to Livernois Avenue, respectively. The full freeway-to-freeway connection ramps to the planned Davison Freeway were opened in 1973, in another extension of the Jeffries Freeway to Grand River Avenue. In 1975, the Jeffries was completed westward to the Southfield Freeway (M-39), and, about this time, the Jeffries Freeway was signed as Interstate 96, leaving a gap in the routing between Farmington and the M-39 interchange.

When a portion of the new Interstate 275 freeway opened from the existing Interstate 96 to the Schoolcraft Avenue in 1976, it was still not signed as Interstate 96. In 1977, the final portion of the Jeffries Freeway through Livonia (from Interstate 275 east to the end of the existing Jeffries Freeway) opened to traffic, and with that, the final segment of Interstate 96 in general. The Interstate 96 routing was assigned along the Interstate 275 freeway south to the Jeffries Freeway, and eastward along the new freeway to the M-39 interchange, and the remaining stub of Interstate 96 around Farmington was redesignated as an extension of M-102 (now M-5).

Subsequent history

Since the completion of Interstate 96 in 1977, several expansions of the freeway have taken place, including the addition of a third lane in each direction for most of the eastern half of the route. Beginning in 1984, a southerly extension of the U.S. 27 freeway (later to become Interstate 69) bypassing Lansing opened; U.S. 27 was then co-signed with Interstate 96 along the western side of Lansing. Three years later, the Interstate 69 designation was applied to this new bypass, resulting in a rare triple-concurrency (I-96/I-69/U.S. 27) that existed until 2002, when U.S. 27 was deleted in Michigan.

On January 12, 2005, a massive pile-up consisting of over 200 motor vehicles occurred in both directions of Interstate 96 near Williamstonmarker in Ingham Countymarker. Two people, Douglas James Baker (age 15) and Jason Eldridge (age 27) were killed in the incident, one of the largest multi-vehicle collisions in U.S. history, which was blamed on heavy fog.

From 2003 to 2005, the Beck Road interchange (exit 160) in Novimarker was reconstructed as a Single Point Urban Interchange , the first in the metropolitan Detroit area and the first on Interstate 96, at a cost of $46 million. The reconstruction of the Wixom Road interchange near Novi as a Single Point Urban Interchange was completed in late fall of 2008.

Future

While Interstate 96 is, for the most part, a complete route, there are a few minor changes planned or being considered for the future.

Ambassador Bridge connection

At this time, there is no direct freeway access to the Ambassador Bridgemarker at the United States/Canada border; only a short surface street connection exists between the bridges' approaches and the nearby Interstates 75 and 96. The construction of an Interstate connection between I-75 and the bridge was mandated by the 1998 National Highway System Act; this most likely would take the form of an easterly extension of Interstate 96 directly to the bridge. However, the actual construction of this connection faces several obstacles, including the projected high cost and local impact.

Despite the past obstacles, plans to make Interstate 96 accessible to the Ambassador Bridge are currently underway. Beginning in 2008, the Michigan Department of Transportation began a two year project to realign the interchange between Interstate 75 and Interstate 96 near Downtown Detroit. The project will include a new pedestrian walk, as well as both freeways having a direct link to the Ambassador bridge, eliminating the pedestrian linkage to the bridge. The project is 90% complete as of July 2009.

Additional interchanges

Currently, another interchange at Latson Road in Howellmarker is planned and under study, pending right of way acquisition. This interchange would bring improved access to the eastern Howell area, which is currently only accessible from westbound Interstate 96.

The reconstruction of the Wixom Road interchange near Novi as a Single Point Urban Interchange was completed in late fall of 2008.

Grand Rapids area work

The eastbound remodel starts north of Leonard St. Leonard St exit will be realigned and a new loop entrance ramp from Leonard to I-96 eastbound replaces the existing entrance. At the point where the present entrance from Leonard merges with the interstate, a new single lane exit to I-196 Westbound will be built at level ground. After the I-196 exit, the present freeway will be used as the M-37/M-44 exit ramp and a new 2 lane freeway will be constructed in the median. Through lanes and exit lanes will be built on level ground, passing under a new westbound 3-lane I-196 bridge before new Eastbound I-196 traveling lanes merge into the through lanes. I-96 passes under a widened M-37/M-44 bridge with 4 lanes and increases to 5 lanes with the M-37/M-44 entrance ramp. After passing over a railroad with an expanded bridge, I-96 drops 2 lanes for exits with M-21 (Fulton St). The present exit to eastbound M-21 will be retained in all aspects and a new exit to westbound M-21 built. An improved Michigan Left turn will be built about west of the present one for the connection from westbound M-21 to eastbound I-96. A new entrance from eastbound M-21 to eastbound I-96 will be built using almost all of the right of way. This section also adds a third eastbound traveling lane along with a weave merge lane to Cascade Rd. This ends the eastbound remodel.
Exit and Entry ramps from new (2006) 36th Street I-96 Interchange


The westbound remodel begins where the eastbound ends at Cascade Road. The entrance ramp from Cascade Road adds a westbound weave merge lane. A new westbound exit from the interstate to both east and west M-21 will be built. A minor adjustment of the present intersection maybe required but a new signal will be installed. Some right of way will be acquired to facilitate this new ramp and the retaining wall. When it passes over the railroad on its way to the M-37/M-44 interchange it will have a widened bridge for the new traveling lane. The present weave merge lane will be kept between M-21 and M-37/M-44. A modified exit ramp will be done for M-37/M-44. Just before the freeway goes under the bridge a new 2 lane freeway splits off from itself to move vehicles pass Leonard and all the weaving and merging from M-37/M-44, I-196, and Leonard St. This will take the two left lanes of traffic. After the split the current freeway alignment will be used as a weave and merge lanes. The next paragraph details all of the merging and weaving of that section.

The first merging traffic comes from North M-37/M-44 which place M-37 onto I-96 until Alpine Ave. The next merging traffic comes from South M-44. This will only require an addition of one lane. Midway between the M-37/M-44 and Leonard stretch of freeway the I-196 exit ramp will be built using a new bridge, with the exit around the present location. This bridge will carry 3 lanes of traffic and will be the official start of that interstate. The I-96 weave merge lane will be reduced at this point to 2 lanes. The 2nd lane on the right will be used as a splitter with traffic either staying on I-96 or going to I-196. This will give the southbound M-44 entrance ramp about the same amount of distance to merge into the 2nd lane to get onto I-196. After less than a quarter mile one lane of traffic will be split off and merged with new I-96 through lanes midway between Leonard and the splitting point. After that the new Eastbound I-196 to Westbound I-96 exit will be merged with the single weave merge lane just before Leonard St bridge. That exit ramp will go over 7 sets of freeway traffic using one long bridge. After the bridge the weave merge lanes will use the present Leonard St exit then become a single lane until the present Leonard St entrance ramp merges with it. After that merging it will finally merge with I-96 traffic. A final note is that the 2 lanes of through traffic for I-96 will use the present freeway at the point it gets a merging lane with the weave merge before Leonard. At that point an additional lane of traffic will be added to the present freeway.

The ability to add lanes between the present freeways in the median is possible since the width of the grassy median is over .

Canceled routings in Detroit

I-96 was originally intended to shadow Grand River Avenue within Detroit's city limits and was actually completed along this route into Farmington. Local opposition killed this project, so prior to the Jeffries opening through Livonia in the 1977, I-96 was relocated onto it. The Farmington stub was redesignated as an extension to M-102 and now bears the designation of M-5. Furthermore when the interchange with Davison Avenue (present day exit 186) was constructed, it was expected that the Davison Freeway was to be extended to meet up with the Jeffries. Accordingly it was built as a full freeway-to-freeway interchange, but before the Jeffries was completed both the Davison extension was cancelled and I-96 was rerouted. This left both an interchange far larger than traffic dictates and I-96 following an elbow that has it intersecting with the straight Grand River Ave. twice within two miles (3 km).

Discrepancy regarding I-275

MDOT and the FHWA disagree on the designation of the Livonia to Farmington Hills stretch of I-96. MDOT signs this 6-mile (10 km) segment as a concurrency with I-275. However, FHWA maintains that I-275's northern terminus is at the I-96/M-14 intersection near Plymouthmarker and therefore this stretch should only be labeled I-96. Although the mile markers and exit numbers continue with I-96's sequence, local residents tend to refer to this leg of I-96 primarily as I-275; the designation distinctly separates the Jeffries Freeway portion of I-96 from the portion of the highway west of I-696.

Auxiliary routes

I-96 has four auxiliary route, connecting the highway to downtowns and other cities. Interstate 196 is a relatively long route, beginning at I-96 east of downtown Grand Rapidsmarker and heading west through downtown to Hollandmarker, and then south to I-94 near Benton Harbormarker. The unsigned Interstate 296 connects I-96 north of downtown Grand Rapids with I-196 in downtown, and is signed as US-131. Interstate 496 is a loop through downtown Lansingmarker, which I-96 bypasses to the south, and Interstate 696 is a northern bypass of Detroitmarker, connecting I-96 in Novimarker with I-75 in Royal Oakmarker and I-94 in St. Clair Shoresmarker.

Interstate 96 presently has two business routes: a loop through Lansing and a loop through Howell. Both follow the old route of US-16, with appropriate connections to I-96. A spur into Muskegon once existed, overlap part of US-31 BR along former US-16, but it has been eliminated. Two routes in the Detroit area — a loop through Farmington and a spur into Detroit, both using Grand River Avenue, and meeting at the temporary end of I-96 near Purdue Avenue, were eliminated when I-96 was moved to the completed Jeffries Freeway in 1977. On 31 October 2007, a spur into Portland was decommissioned and turned back to the City of Portland."ROADWAY SEGMENT transferred from MDOT to the CITY, becoming a City Major Street:

I-96 Business Spur/Grand River Avenue, from the northern terminus of the I-96 Business Spur at the centerline of Kent Street, southeasterly to the southern terminus of the I-96 Business Spur at the eastbound I-96 exit ramp, a distance of approximately , in control section 34032."
