MDOT M-24 road reconstruction, in Lapeer and Lapeer Township, well underway

Posted: Updated:
LAPEER COUNTY (WJRT) - (05/06/14) - The orange barrels are up and construction crews are down to business reconstructing M-24 in Lapeer County.

Work is scheduled through mid-September 2015.

It's a Michigan Department of Transportation project. A news release from MDOT says crews started two weeks ago.

The project reconstructs two miles of M-24, south of I-69 to Nepessing Street, in Lapeer and Lapeer Township.

David Walker, of Lapeer, figured out how to handle it early on.

"I go around all this," he said, pointing to M-24 from the Kroger parking lot. "Took me 15 minutes to go two blocks."

Sharona Rosnik said she drove around just fine Tuesday afternoon.

"Around 5 o'clock, forget about it," she said.

The area under construction is a busy, business corridor.

"We haven't seen a decline yet," said Amanda Davis, manager of Michele & Company Fine Jewelers in Lapeer.

The business sits right on M-24 between Arby's and Burger King.

Davis said they're tracking traffic and opened a back entrance because you can't get in or out, out front.

"We're just going to have to deal with it," Davis said.

Lapeer City Manager Dale Kerbyson said construction crews are "flying" and are either ahead of schedule or right on track.

Kerbyson said the project even allows the city to replace water and sewer lines at the same time, which lessens Lapeer's cost.

Kerbyson said there will likely be some traffic tension, but pointed out residents are consistently concerned with the condition of area roads, and this work addresses that.
