Beware of traffic delays around JLA
Southbound Lodge to undergo repaving this weekend
MDOT will be making necessary pavement repairs on southbound M-10 (Lodge Freeway) approaching the exits to JLA. Detour signs will be posted to direct traffic away from the problem area. Fans who usually use southbound Lodge to get to games will be asked to follow the posted detour to northbound I-75 to southbound I-375 and exit Jefferson Avenue.
There shouldn't be any problems getting to JLA for Friday’s game against the Toronto Maple Leafs, as full closure will not be in place until 9 p.m. EDT. Sunday’s game against the Pittsburgh Penguins will be impacted.
Fans should also know that their commutes following this weekend’s games will not be affected by the southbound Lodge construction.
