JACKSON, Mich. (WLNS) — It’s something that drivers in Jackson have been looking forward to all year, traffic on Michigan Avenue going in both directions.

6 News has the latest on this massive construction project and how businesses are reacting.

Traffic moving in both directions on Michigan Avenue is an early Christmas present for Caffe Lilla.

“We are very excited about it. We are hoping it will bring back some of the business that we’ve lost,” said Heidi Mills, owner of Caffe Lilla.

This major artery on the west side of Jackson has been down to only one lane since the Michigan Department of Transportation started a big reconstruction project in May.

Businesses say the construction has made it difficult for customers to get to them.
