CONSTANTINE (WKZO) -- The Village of Constantine held their ribbon snipping ceremony last weekend but it wasn’t until sometime midweek, without ceremony, and a few days a head of schedule, that a couple of MDOT employees in their reflective vests, removed the barriers and just like that the 18-million dollar Constantine Bypass was opened to traffic, just in time for the Halloween rush.

MDOT’s Nick Schrippa says they hope it will give a boost to business from Big Rapids to the border and smooth the way for the free flow of commerce.

Schrippa says there is still a little landscaping to do and they have to finish up work where the new highway links to the old highway, but most of the travel portion of the project is complete.
