Some road projects still have traffic snags

Most of the Michigan Department of Transportation’s road construction projects have been shut down for the Labor Day weekend.

That means traffic near most of the projects is flowing normally, but some of the construction zones still have traffic snags.

Six of the 44 MDOT work zones that are either still active or have some traffic restrictions are in the Upper Peninsula.

In Houghton County, M-26 in Laurium has a detour. Third Street is closed, and the detour leads traffic onto Lake Linden Avenue and US-41 to M-26.

In Chippewa County, M-28 near Raco is open in each direction, but both sides have a nine-foot width restriction.

M-35 in Menominee has a traffic detour onto city streets.

M-64 in Ontonagon County has one lane open, controlled by temporary traffic signals, at the Duck Creek, Potato River and Mineral River bridges.

In Marquette County, M-95 has one lane open at the Michigamme River bridge, and a temporary traffic signal is in place.

Finally, M-189 in Iron River has a traffic detour onto city streets.
