INTERSTATE INTERCHANGE WORK ON HOLD FOR WINTER
It's done, for now, but the last few months was just the beginning. That's the work on the reconstruction of the I-94 and I-69 interchange in Port Huron Township. The work started in September with Diane Cross at the Michigan Department of Transportation telling us work crews will be back in the early spring of next year. Cross says the project in total includes reconstructing I-94 in each direction between Lapeer and Griswold roads, and I-69 in each direction between Range and the interchange. In addition, six bridges in the interchange are to see replacement. One of the bridges, from the ramp to westbound I-69 off of eastbound I-94 is gone and that exit remains detoured. Cross reminds drivers to not rely on their GPS devices, but instead follow the posted signs for directions. The $76-million dollar project is expected to wrap up in late 2015.
