LIVONIA, Mich. — A major freeway construction project in the Detroit area that's requiring motorists to take detours until October is on schedule.

The Detroit News reports (http://bit.ly/1kEtkT6 ) Tuesday that the update comes despite a delayed start due to prolonged wintry weather.

A several-mile stretch of Interstate 96 in Livonia and Wayne County's Redford Township is shut down. The $148 million project to rebuild the roadway also includes bridge repair and replacement work. Details are posted on a website for the project.

The work has disrupted the commutes of those who typically use I-96. According to the Michigan Department of Transportation, the shutdown has forced an estimated 140,000 drivers to seek alternate routes, such as I-94, I-696 or the Lodge Freeway.
