MDOT Suspends Construction for Fourth of July Holiday


The Michigan Department of Transportation has announced that they will suspend construction on 110 of 145 projects across the state in an effort to make travel easier for Fourth of July travelers.

Beginning at 3 p.m. on Thursday and continuing until 6 a.m. Monday, July 7, MDOT will suspend construction wherever possible on state roads and bridges. This will help to ease the ride for the estimated 1.4 million Michigan motorists expected to be driving this holiday weekend.

State Transportation Director Kirk T. Steudle says “the Fourth of July holiday is one of the highlights of summer in Michigan. In an effort to help motorists get out and enjoy all of their activities and events, MDOT will suspend work on most projects for the holiday.” Steudle also says that some lane restrictions will remain and they urge all motorists to “buckle up, obey the speed limits, pay attention to road signs and orange barrels, and put the cell phone away while driving.”
