It could be a rough Monday morning commute as MDOT kicks off several new freeway repair projects in the Detroit area. And, it’s not all clear for the weekend, either. 

Crews are expected to begin painting parts of 30 bridges over I-96 between Newburgh and Telegraph roads in Wayne County.

Monday also is the day MDOT will begin a freeway lighting upgrade on both directions of I-94, in stages between I-96 and I-75.
