The days are gradually getting nicer and the weather is turning a bit warmer, so that means it's time for the orange barrels to go up as another season of road construction begins. A project that started last year continues this year for the local area as the Michigan Department of Transportation starts again on the reconstruction for the I-94 and I-69 interchange. MDOT's Jim Petronsky says it really starts up in a couple weeks with lane shifts to just one side of the road. The switch on April 15th will close off access from eastbound 94 to the eastbound I-69 Business Loop, also known as Oak Street, and detoured on 94 to exit 274-A or the Lapeer Connector, then drivers will have to take that exit to Lapeer Road and turn left on Lapeer to 24th Street where they'll make a right to go back to Oak and the Business Loop. Petronsky says the single bridge that used to go from eastbound 94 to westbound 69 will become two bridges, with one going over the 94 portion and one that travels over the 69 portion. The work is expected to wrap up in the late fall.
