DETROIT (WWJ) -Construction work is expected to cause delays on a portion of just about every freeway, all across metro Detroit this weekend.

According to the Michigan Department of Transportation, closures are planned on I-94, M-5 and M-59; while lanes will be closed on I-94, I-96, I-375, M-10 and M-39 from the evening of Friday, July 26, through Monday morning.

Edward Gross of Farmington Hills says it's the same thing every year. "As long as I've been living in Michigan, summers have been congested for travel on all the roads," he told WWJ's Mike Campbell.

"It impacts the children having fun, getting to destinations, travel; it's ridiculous," added Gross, who said he wishes roadwork contracts would come with a guarantee so drivers don't have to deal with closures in the same spots year after year. 

Here is what drivers can expect, weather permitting:
