Traffic To Be Stopped On I-196 Wednesday Morning

Drivers that take I-196 in the South Haven area probably have noticed that the Michigan Department of Transportation has put up signs indicating traffic will be stopped near the Palisades nuclear plant Wednesday morning from 8 to 11. There has been some electrical power line work near Palisades and, after checking with Entergy/Palisades, they said it’s not related to what they are doing. A company named ITC owns the switchyard and did inspections of transmission towers and lines in our area this past September. Plan to take another route if traveling on I-196 north or south near the Palisades Power Plant on Wednesday morning.
