I'll have to drive this section everyday. I'm not looking forward to the delays, but it will be very nice once it's complete. This is long overdue.

That means everyone going westbound to Jenison/Hudsonville will be getting off at Wilson.
That ought to gridlock Grandville. Maybe now would be a good time for the illustrious leaders of Grandville to implement their plan of narrowing Chicago Drive down to one lane in each direction through downtown to provide more street parking. They could stop everybody in their tracks.

Westbound traffic can also get off at 44th or go on to Hudsonville.

Well I don't know what MDOT considers rush hours but I was surprised to find west bound 196 down to one lane this morning at 7:20am. So much for keeping traffic flowing. Time to find a new route to work.
