Jokingly, we all know the two constants in life are death and taxes. However, during a pandemic, that is all too real, and certainly not a source for humor, just a wry observation. In the same breath, any Michigander knows, you can add road construction to that combo.
Normally getting word of a road construction project would at least get a mild chagrin, but with everything we're dealing with now, it's actually welcome news that promises that someday we may get back to good. And besides, there's little if any traffic these days, so do it now.
Summer construction plans for the 2020 season are becoming public. The Michigan Department of Transportation says they'll be conducting an open house to present the Dickman Road (I -94 Business Loop) construction project planned for Battle Creek and Springfield.
It's already August and we've pretty much weather a couple of hot spells, so what's a little traffic inconvenience now? You can dream about snow flurries while your foot is on and off the brake pedal. (Any by the time, this project wraps up, there just might be snow flurries.)
How many times do we need to remind you, when the sign says Road Closed - stay off. A motorcyclist driving I-69 in a construction zone near Lansing yesterday (August 20) didn't heed any of the signage warning of a closed lane.
