Image 1 of 6

It's been a topic of conversation for months in our area - roads, potholes, closures and repairs.

And this weekend several more closures will cause a major headache for drivers.

Westbound I-696, already closed through November in Macomb County will have added closures from Dequindre to Telegraph this weekend.

On the eastside, I-94 in both directions will be closed from Conner to I-75 until Monday morning. Drivers have been using this route has a detour to go around the closure of I-696 but this weekend, you'll have to find a different way.
