MDOT To Lift Lane Restrictions on Most Roads
So since the July 4th Holiday is here and July 3rd is one of the most traveled days, MDOT is trying to help. According to WILX, starting at 3 p.m. Wednesday, July 3, and continuing until 6 a.m. Monday, July 8, 101 out of 143 projects statewide will have lane restrictions removed. So if you are traveling anywhere else in the state this might help with traffic and other congestion that may happen due to lane restrictions.
Now even though the lane restrictions are removed, you still may still certain traffic configurations or closures on the shoulder still in place as well as some equipment. If you are driving through an area with any of that make sure to drive carefully. AAA has estimated 1.7 million people from Michigan are expected to be on the roads which is a 4.4% increase over last year.
You can see all of the construction situations and lane restrictions that still may be in place this weekend, here.
