M-66 work set to begin Tuesday
M-66 north of Lake Odessa and on the south side of Nashville will be closed Tuesday as crews begin two major projects.
Both projects by the Michigan Department of Transportation require total closure of sections of the highway through August.
Work in Nashville, involving replacement of the bridge at Quaker Brook, is expected to continue through Aug. 2.
The official detour for northbound traffic will be M-79 into Hastings then north and east on M-43 back to M-66.
Resurfacing of M-66 in Ionia County has an estimated completion date of Aug. 31. The $10 million project will include resurfacing of the highway from M-50 to I-96, including new concrete curb and gutter, improved drainage, new guard rails and culverts.
Traffic along that stretch will be directed west on a detour along Jordan Lake Road in Lake Odessa, north to Portland Road and back east to M-66.
