LIVONIA, Mich. (AP) -- Officials say a major freeway construction project in the Detroit area that's requiring motorists to take detours until October is on schedule.

The Detroit News reports the Michigan Department of Transportation offered an update on the project Wednesday, saying it's 66 percent completed with no unexpected problems. MDOT spokesman Jeff Horne says a mid-October reopening still is planned.

A several-mile stretch of Interstate 96 in Livonia and Wayne County's Redford Township was shut in April. The $148 million project to rebuild the roadway also includes bridge repair and replacement work.
