Several other road construction projects across the state are on hold because of a labor dispute.

The Michigan Infrastructure Transportation Association has locked out unions.

A contract between MITA and a union expired on June first and they haven't been able to agree on a new contract.

MITA represents more than 500 construction companies across the state.

The lockout is expected to halt more than 80% of the state's current road projects.

This lockout includes the reconstruction work on a portion of I-94 in Jackson county.

No word on when the work will pick back up.
