Morning Show Insider: 👷 Construction Season

Photo does not have a caption

Message from Kim DeGiulio: Is it finally summer? I think we might be in the clear with these 80 degree days in our forecast. I’ve been watching the weather closely this week because my brother and his fiancé are getting married on Saturday in northern Michigan and the ceremony is outside. Risky move but it looks like the forecast is just as good up north as down here in Detroit. Now the only thing I need to worry about is getting through that I-75 construction to get up north. 

Speaking of construction, the southbound side of M-10 will be closing down this weekend. Make sure to watch Friday so I can help you get around that closure. 

Also, I wanted to remind you all that Vote 4 the Best is back. This is your chance to let everyone know the best spots around metro Detroit. We have so many great restaurants and shops right in our backyard. They deserve to be recognized! If you know a place that deserves some recognition, don’t waste any time, nominate them now! 

Here's what's coming up Friday, June 7th, 2019 on Local 4 News Today.
