I came up 196 a couple of days ago & the road is in pretty bad condition.
I don't know which way are you coming from, but from Grand Rapids, MI, you don't need to go I-196. As the previous post stated, you go south on 131 to Kalamazoo, and then on down to Indiana. There is some construction as you go through Kalamazoo and also down south in Indiana. I found the roads to Nappanee after you leave Michigan much worse - two lanes some construction...
