SAGINAW COUNTY, MI (WNEM) -

Brian Ulman, MDOT spokesman, said work has resumed between Dixie Highway and M-46.

"We're anxious to get this project started. It will be good to see guys back out there working and getting the road done," Ulman said.

Crews will construct a sound wall on the southbound side of Interstate 75 in Saginaw County. The northbound lanes will be rebuilt and bridgework will be finalized. Two lanes of the interstate will be closed in both directions.

"Today we're out there doing signs and putting some barrels out there getting stuff ready like that," Ulman said. "I would expect tomorrow you'll see some re-stripping and some barrier wall being placed on southbound and then the following day on northbound. By the end of the week there will likely be a lane closure in each direction."

So even though the lanes might not be closed yet, Ulman wants motorists to be on alert and said this project is well under way.

"Just drive with caution and be aware that they're out there and get everybody home safe," Ulman said.
