Motorists can expect continued slowdowns on US-23 over the next week.

The Michigan Department of Transportation says continued paving work on the Flex Route project will continue to close down a single lane in each direction on US-23. A northbound lane will be closed from 6 Mile Road to M-36 daily between 4 a.m. and 3 p.m. now through Sunday, November 12th. Meanwhile, southbound US-23 will see a single lane closure from M-36 to M-14 daily between 10 a.m. and 5 a.m. now through Tuesday, November 14th.

Then pavement marking installation will force a southbound lane to also be closed between M-36 and M-14 starting at 10 a.m. on the 14th and lasting daily until 5 a.m. Friday, November 17th. Motorists are advised to plan extra time when traveling through the work zone and to watch for traffic slowdowns.

MDOT says the Flex Route project is part of a $92 million investment along the US-23 corridor that includes replacing and repairing bridges, extending and upgrading ramps, repairing pavement and expanding intelligent transportation systems technology. (JK)
