In case you weren't aware, I-96 in Livonia between Newburgh and Telegraph roads will soon be closed for up to nine months. As the Freep notes today, that has numerous businesses along the freeway worried.
It also will be a pain for motorists -- that is, until they find another way around construction. If you're one of those people, don't fret! It'll all be over soon. In the meantime, here's a list of suggested alternative routes from the Michigan Department of Transportation's project website:
(If you're heading from downtown Detroit to western Wayne County)
(For commuters heading in the opposite direction)
More than a dozen overpasses will be closed for reconstruction. You can check out which ones here. MDOT says the Telegraph and Newburgh roads entrance and exit ramps will remain open throughout the duration of the project.
