M-24 Road Work Starting Soon

12197130_BG2Wanted to get something out to everyone about the start up for the project on M-24 in Lapeer.  This year’s work will  be from approximately Demille to Nepessing.  The contractor is planning on bringing out signs and barrels starting around April 6th.  Then on April 13th they will start the traffic control.

For this first stage they are going to move all the traffic to the east side of M-24.  Once they have traffic moved over to the east side they will start on the reconstruction of the west side of M-24.  Again this year you will not be able to make a left hand turn in the construction zone except at the signals.

This stage will take until about the end of June then traffic will be shifted over to the west side and the east side will be reconstructed.

The detour for the Farmers Creek bridge will start after the July 4th holiday, about July 7th.  The detour will be in place until about the end of August.

Please forward this information on to anyone that may find it useful.  thanks
