Huge Construction Project on I-69 in Flint Begins on Monday
I think we can all agree that the roads throughout Michigan for the most part suck! Every year after a winter's worth of snow, plowing, and other destructive elements, the roads can wreak havoc on your car.
On Monday, one of those terrible stretches of roads will see the start of a $34 million repair project. Both eastbound and westbound I-69 will get some attention from the road commission between Ballenger Highway and Fenton Road, basically I-75 to I-475.
As with any construction project, the highway might get a bit congested but two lanes of traffic will remain open in each direction. Pending weather and any other possible slowdowns, the project is expected to be finished in November.
To start the project, all traffic will be shifted to the eastbound lanes so a full reconstruction can start on the westbound side. Traffic will again be shifted to the westbound side in July to fix the eastbound side.
In the coming weeks and months, always be prepared for ramp and lane closures, traffic shifts, and overall slow-moving travel.
