Memorial Day Weekend Lane And Road Closures In Michigan – 2013
Memorial Day weekend provides a great opportunity to travel and spend some time away from home...but getting there can be a challenge.
Many road constructions projects are opening up lanes or being put on hold this weekend, but not all.
On Friday at 3:00pm, traffic restrictions will be removed on 83 of 130 Michigan Department of Transportation projects.
Good news, but still a lot to be aware of as you travel this weekend.
