The Michigan Department of Transportation will suspend work and reopen lanes on several major state highways, including U.S. 127 north of Jackson and U.S. 127 in Hillsdale County, for the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race Sunday at Michigan International Speedway.
Work on most state roads in counties surrounding MIS will be suspended at 7 a.m. Thursday until 7 a.m. Tuesday. However, several MDOT projects still will have restrictions in place over race weekend and MDOT officials urge motorists to drive with caution in work zones.
On I-94 in Jackson County, two lanes of traffic will be maintained in each direction with a traffic shift between Sargent Road and the Washtenaw County line.
To assist motorists and race fans, MDOT is posting MIS raceday travel information on the Web, including maps and information about statewide construction projects, and information about the inbound and outbound traffic patterns. Motorists can find information online at www.michigan.gov/mdot or www.michigan.gov/drive.
