The Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT) will suspend work and reopen lanes on major state highways in south-central Michigan, including I-94 in Jackson County and M-50 in Lenawee County, for the Quicken Loans 400 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race at Michigan International Speedway (MIS). The first big race of the season at MIS will be held on Sunday, June 17.
Overall, work on most state roads in counties surrounding MIS, which is located in Brooklyn in Jackson County, will be suspended from 7 a.m. Thursday, June 14, until 7 a.m. Tuesday, June 19. However, several MDOT projects still will have restrictions in place over race weekend and MDOT urges motorists to drive with caution in work zones.
On US-223 in Palmyra, one lane of traffic is open with a temporary signal on the bridge over the River Raisin. The temporary signal will be adjusted to allow for increased traffic – both inbound and outbound – for the race on Sunday.

And on M-52 in Manchester, southbound traffic is maintained while northbound traffic is detoured. In addition, one lane of traffic is open on M-52 over the River Raisin in Manchester, at Austin Road.
To assist motorists and race fans, MDOT is posting MIS race day travel information on the Web, including maps and information about statewide construction projects, and information about the inbound and outbound traffic patterns.
