Construction Notice [pdf for print]

All participants and presenters need to allow at least one hour traveling time to arrive on time.

There will be major highway construction taking place on US-127 and I-96 beginning Monday, March 23, which will impact travel to the Henry Center for Executive Development. Expect some traffic delays on both US-127 and I-96 as traffic is routed to one lane in some areas. To avoid major traffic delays, we recommend the following routes to the Henry Center:

Guests traveling from Detroit on I-96:
The exit from I-96 west to US-127 north will be closed 8:00 p.m. to 5:00 a.m. To avoid traffic delays when coming from Detroit on I-96, take the Okemos Rd. exit, turn right (north) onto Okemos Rd., then left (west) at the light onto Jolly Rd., then right (north) onto Collins Rd., and then left onto Forest Rd. The Henry Center will be on your right.> 

Guests traveling from the North or from Flint (69):
Take US-127 south to either:
1. the Michigan Avenue exit, then turn left (east) onto Michigan Ave., then right (south) onto Harrison Rd. Take Harrison Rd. south until it ends at Forest Road, turn right, then take the next immediate right onto Forest Rd. OR
2. the Trowbridge Rd exit, and take Trowbridge Rd. east to Harrison Rd. and turn right (south) onto Harrison Rd. Follow Harrison Rd. south until it ends at Forest Rd., turn right, then take the next immediate right onto Forest Rd.

Guests traveling from Grand Rapids:
Take I-96 east to I-69, then south on US-127; take either the Michigan Avenue or Trowbridge Rd. exit (as above) OR Take I-96 east to I-496 east; follow I-496 east to the Trowbridge Rd. exit, then take Trowbridge Rd. east to Harrison Rd. and turn right (south) onto Harrison Rd. Follow Harrison Rd. south until it ends at Forest Rd., turn right, then take the next immediate right onto Forest Rd. The Henry Center will be on your right.

Guests traveling from the South/Jackson:

To avoid delays, take I-96 EAST to the Okemos Rd. exit, turn left (north) onto Okemos Rd., then left (west) at the light onto Jolly Rd., then right (north) onto Collins Rd., and then left onto Forest Rd.
