This Memorial Day weekend, the Michigan Department of Transportation is removing lane restrictions on nearly 70 percent of its road and bridge projects statewide to ease traffic delays for holiday travelers.

AAA Michigan estimates more than 1.3 million people from Michigan are expected to travel 50 miles or more from home during the Memorial Day holiday weekend.

According to WILX News 10, Your Breaking News and Weather Authority, 90 out of 131 projects statewide will have lane restrictions removed.

While motorists will see suspended operations in most MDOT construction zones for the weekend, drivers are advised that equipment and certain traffic configurations may remain in place, like temporary shifts or shoulder closures.
