To help make travel easier, the Michigan department of Transportation (MDOT) is lifting traffic restrictions on 94 of 132 projects statewide during the Memorial Day holiday weekend.

Beginning at 3 p.m. on Friday, May 25, and continuing until 6 a.m. on Tuesday, May 29, MDOT is suspending road work wherever possible.

"Memorial Day weekend begins the busy summer travel season in Michigan," said State Transportation Director Director Kirk T. Steudle. "Let's make sure everyone gets to their destination and home safely. Remember to buckle up, put your cell phone down, and be extra cautious in construction zones."

A work zone in Genesee County will remain active however. I-475 will have traffic shifted with the left lanes closed in both directions.
