Let's be honest - we can't complain about the state not fixing the roads and then complain when they do fix them.

Construction on I-475 starts on Monday, March 11th. Here are the projects that will be taking place:

  • bridge work at Saginaw and Detroit St.
  • interchange construction
  • removal of pedestrian bridges
  • lane reduction between Saginaw and Carpenter

And now, the part you've all been waiting for -- CLOSURES:

  • NB I-475 reduced to one lane from Carpenter Road to Clio Road
  • SB I-475 closed and detoured from the north junction of the I-475 interchange to I-69
  • Periodic single-lane closures of I-475 from I-69 to the south I-75/I-475 junction

Yes, this will be a slight pain in the butt for some people. You may have to find a different way to work temporarily or give yourself extra time on your commute but, from the looks of it, this will be worth it.
