Eastbound lanes of I-696 in Oakland County will have limited availability on Monday

(WXYZ) - UPDATE: All lanes are now open

--------------------------------------------

The eastbound lanes of I-696 in Oakland County will have limited availability starting at 5 a.m. Monday.

Four lanes will be open from I-275 to Orchard Lake. 

Two lanes will be open from Orchard Lake to American Drive and only one lane will be open to Telegraph.

Officials say the concrete did not cure hard enough to allow traffic to drive on it and that only time will finish curing, sometime today. MDOT believes the sporadic rain over the weekend was a factor.

MDOT says drivers should be prepared for back-ups on connecting freeways.
