13 road closures scheduled this week in Michigan

Construction workers have another busy week on Michigan’s busy highways as the calendar turns to June.

The state Department of Transportation (MDOT) has about 90 highway projects scheduled to close lanes, ramps and entire segments of major highways between Sunday, June 2 and Saturday, June 8. These are in addition to ongoing projects transferred from previous weeks. .

Drivers should plan for possible traffic slowdowns, especially during rush hour, on highways such as US 31 in Antrim and Grand Traverse counties, US 23 in Monroe and Washtenaw counties, US 131 in Kent County and I-96 in Ingham and Livingston counties.

Below is a summary of 13 closures to watch out for this week. All projects depend on the weather. State officials remind drivers to slow down and follow posted signs in work zones.

A complete list of highway projects is available through MDOT’s online map and construction list.
