I-96 will open tomorrow (Monday, September 22), more than two weeks ahead of schedule.
 

 
The stretch was closed between Telegraph and Newburgh Roads in Livonia.
 
The announcement was made today as Governor Rick Snyder and others gathered for a ribbon-cutting ceremony and walk on the freeway.
 
I-96 was closed in April to allow crews to reconstruct the 7-mile stretch.
 
Crews rebuilt 56 miles of freeway, repaired 37 bridges, and reconstructed 26 ramps.
 
The project area runs through Redford Township and Livonia.
