The Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT) will once again make travel easier for motorists this Fourth of July.

Beginning at 3 p.m. Wednesday and continuing through 6 a.m. Monday, MDOT will be lifting traffic restrictions on 118 of the 162 projects statewide. MDOT says this will help make travel easier for the estimated 1.4 million Michigan residents AAA Michigan says will be traveling this holiday weekend.

State Transportation Director Kirk T. Steudle says “MDOT knows the Fourth of July is a great time of year for motorists from all over to enjoy Pure Michigan.”

While most work zones will be inactive for the holiday, some areas will still have lane restrictions in place. In Genesee County that includes:

  • I-69 which will have one lane closed in each direction over Irish Road with traffic shifted.

Motorists are also encouraged to regularly check MDOT’s traffic website ( for traffic incident alerts, live traffic webcams and additional construction information.
