US-23/223 construction nearing completion

Posted: Updated:
MONROE COUNTY, MI (Toledo News Now) -

Good news for drivers in Monroe County: Crews are getting ready to open more lanes and ramps as construction moves along at the US-23/223 interchange.

The project has been impacting drivers for months, but it's now one step closer to completion. By Saturday night, drivers can expect to see a lot fewer orange barrels as crews open up the eastbound lanes of 223.

The ramp from northbound 23 to 223 will be open, as well.

The construction is all part of a roundabout project at that interchange, and those who drive in the area say they're happy it's moving along.

"It's about time," said Kandace, from Lenawee County. "You have to go all the way around to get back over this way. It's a good 10-15 minutes extra sometimes."

MDOT officials say the rest of the ramps should open up in a few more weeks.
