3. Planning your I-275 detour? Check Patch!
Commuters have found a new headache while traversing on Interstate 275 by the Ann Arbor Trail overpass as the Michigan Department of Transportation begins work on 34 bridges and overpasses along 13 miles of expressway. If you're trying to time your commute right or explore detours, check the Canton Patch "Commute" page (check here for Plymouth) for live traffic. We also have current gas prices listed, so you can fill up before you head out! Oh, and remember to brake for workers!
Check our overview of the project here on Patch.
