KALAMAZOO (WKZO) -- Drivers around Kalamazoo are being reminded of a traffic headache they could be facing this week. The Michigan Department of Transpiration says that as part of its construction project at Stadium Drive and US 131, the ramps off eastbound Stadium to southbound 131 and southbound 131 to westbound Stadium will be closed through the rest of the month. A detour is posted.
A 21 million dollar project on that area has been underway all construction season, and will be finished in the fall of next year. MDOTsays that, when it's all finished, the area will have more lanes, better highway access, and improved traffic signals. The work is partly being done to prepare for the opening of a new Costco and other businesses at Drake Road and Stadium.
