There are other alternate routes to consider, including:
For those driving north from downtown Detroit, take the Lodge to northbound Evergreen to westbound 12 Mile and then back to northbound Lodge/Northwestern, and vice versa.
For those heading west, consider taking the Lodge Freeway to westbound Eight Mile to Grand River Avenue and then follow Grand River to M-5 and then back to the Lodge.
For eastbound I-696 commuters, take Orchard Lake Road north to 12 Mile and then east to southbound Telegraph or Evergreen back to I-696.
Consider taking I-275 south to Eight Mile and then Eight Mile east back to the Lodge.
For motorists who frequently use the Mixing Bowl, the fun won't end this summer. MDOT also has big plans for the Lodge in 2007.
"This year, we're working in the Mixing Bowl from I-696 to Lahser Road," said MDOT's Kratofil.
"We'll complete that this construction season. Next year, we'll be reconstructing M-10 from Lahser south to Greenfield, in Detroit. The project will also include repairs to over 30 bridges from Greenfield to I-94."
