Three months in, the I-96 construction project is on schedule, according to MDOT.
There were no injuries but a lot of thick, black smoke as a result of a commercial building fire, Friday evening in Detroit.
Two vehicles have front-end damage while a third vehicle is so mangled, it is unidentifiable.
Dozens of residents who live along the I-96 construction zone are complaining about the overnight noise level of the project.
MDOT contends that the only way to complete the project in a ‘timely’ manner, six months or so, is to work around the clock.
The I-96 headaches have only just begun. The ripple effects will be felt on other freeways too, with people finding new alternate routes to work.
If your commute includes I-96, be prepared.
It’s going to be a cruel summer for drivers who rely on I-96 to get across town.
