Construction at the Jolly and Okemos Intersection Officially Underway
A busy Mid-Michigan intersection is about to get a lot more chaotic. Crews are already getting things prepped for construction at the Jolly and Okemos intersection..
The project involves adding two right turn lanes, to turn from Jolly Road south on to Okemos, to turn from northbound Okemos on to eastbound Jolly and from southbound Okemos on to westbound Jolly.
There's two projects actually going on. There's the intersection of Jolly and Okemos, and then crews are also working on Jolly Road between Dobie and Meridian Road. That's about two miles long.
The wonders will include wider roads, a fresh surface, drain improvements and new shoulder lanes. The make-over for both projects has a $4.6 million price tag.
Both projects involving Jolly Road are expected to be completed by the end of summer. Here's more from WILX-TV 10.
