Motorists and business owners are feeling the frustration as the M-24 construction process finishes it's second week. The nearly two-mile construction zone has been turned into one lane each way, with strictly enforced no left turn signs all along the route. Only turns at intersections are allowable and that is a flashpoint with some drivers who are just trying to stop and get gas.

The 17.5 million dollar project is rebuilding M-24 from south of the I-69 interchange to Nepessing Street, right through the heart of Lapeer. Come July, M-24 from DeMille to Genesee will be completely closed while they dig up the bridge over Farmer's Creek. It looks to be a long summer for both drivers and businesses.
