Construction causing delays in southern Monroe County

MONROE COUNTY, MI - Construction in Monroe County is causing delays for drivers.

Two of three lanes on I-75 between the Ohio/Michigan line and the Laplaisance Rd. Exit are closed.  That's about 12 miles.

Drivers have been frustrated.  "It's a little challenging. We saw some cars going off the ramp the opposite direction. Almost got into an accident," said one driver.

The barrels are expected to be removed by Sunday at 6:00pm.
