HUDSONVILLE — The Michigan Department of Transportation will oversee $3.7 million in improvements on nearly four miles of

Chicago Drive
from Hudsonville to Jenison in OttawaCounty. Work will begin today and continue through the end of July.

"We realize this is a major route for commuters traveling between Holland, Hudsonville and Grand Rapids," said Roger Safford, MDOT Grand Region engineer. "We will try to avoid peak-hour lane closures in an effort to reduce the impact on those motorists."

At least one traffic lane will be maintained in each direction at all times, according to MDOT. To reduce delays, there will be minimal eastbound lane closures during peak morning travel periods and minimal westbound lane closures during peak evening travel periods.

MDOT will also begin improvements April 23 on

Rivertown Parkway/44th Street
from
Potomac Avenue
to
Spartan Industrial Drive
in Grandville. Indirect left turns will be constructed at the intersection of
Ivanrest Avenue
and
44th Street
to improve safety and traffic flow. The
44th Street
median will be widened through the Ivanrest and X-Rite/Macatawa intersections by realigning eastbound lanes. In addition, eastbound
44th Street
will be widened to three lanes between
X-Rite Drive
and
Spartan Industrial Drive
. Work will continue through mid-August. 

During construction, there will be lane closures on

Rivertown Parkway/44th Street
and
Ivanrest Avenue
. There will be intermittent turn restrictions at the
Ivanrest Avenue
and
Spartan Industrial Drive
intersections during construction. There will be no access to
X-Rite Drive
and
Macatawa Drive
from
44th Street
during construction; access to those areas will be permitted from
Ivanrest Avenue
only.
