One of the busiest stretches of freeway outside of Metro Detroit is US-23 north of Ann Arbor.  Work on a new "Flex Route" to ease some of that congestion has been underway for a year and finally opened for limited use on Wednesday.

89.1 WEMU’s Lisa Barry spoke with Michigan Department of Transportation spokesperson Kari Arend who gives an update on the progress of the Flex Route opening.

There's a new statewide campaign getting underway to remind motorists to make sure everyone is wearing a seat belt.  


Ann Arbor officials are warning motorists to avoid Covington Drive on Ann Arbor's west-side.  A water main break is disrupting traffic on Covington between Scio Church and Agincourt.  Crews are on the scene making repairs.

Motorists in the Ann Arbor/Pittsfield Township should prepare for some new traffic delays as a new road construction project gets underway. As WEMU's Andrew Cluley reports, work on a new roundabout at the intersection of State Street and Ellsworth Road will get underway in June.
