Good news for travelers in Berrien County! The long-awaited reopening of the Pipestone Road and Napier Avenue intersection has arrived just in time for the Memorial Day weekend. According to the Berrien County Road Department, the intersection will be accessible to traffic from Friday through Monday, ensuring smooth passage for holiday travelers.

Since May 8, the intersection has remained closed due to ongoing road work aimed at enhancing the infrastructure and improving travel conditions in the area. The temporary closure has allowed construction crews to diligently carry out the necessary upgrades. However, it has also caused some inconvenience for local commuters and travelers passing through the region.

But now, as Memorial Day approaches, the Berrien County Road Department has prioritized completing the essential construction tasks, enabling the intersection to reopen temporarily and accommodate the expected surge in holiday traffic. Travelers can breathe a sigh of relief as they can now utilize this key intersection to reach their destinations conveniently.

It's important to note that while the intersection will be accessible for Memorial Day weekend, traffic restrictions will resume on Tuesday following the holiday. This temporary reopening aims to facilitate smoother travel experiences during the busy holiday period.

The road department anticipates the entire project to be completed by September 30, ensuring long-term benefits for drivers and pedestrians alike. The improvements will contribute to enhanced safety, efficiency, and overall quality of transportation in the area.

During the ongoing road work, it is advised that motorists follow designated detour routes to avoid any confusion or delays. Northbound Pipestone traffic should utilize M-139 to reach Pipestone Road, while southbound Pipestone travelers are recommended to take M-139 to Napier Avenue, then proceed onto Plaza Drive, Fairplain Drive, Mall Drive, and finally reconnect with Pipestone Road.

As holiday travelers embark on their journeys this Memorial Day weekend, the reopening of the Pipestone and Napier intersection serves as a welcome development. It ensures smoother travel experiences and allows families and friends to come together and enjoy the holiday weekend without unnecessary traffic disruptions.

So, pack your bags, plan your route, and take advantage of the reopened intersection as you set off on your Memorial Day adventures in Berrien County. Safe travels to all!
