A road project in Long Lake Township may slow your daily commute.ã??

The Grand Traverse County Road Commission started sealing cracks along North Long Lake Road which is reducing traffic to one lane.

Along the three mile stretch of road from the Benzie County line to Gilbert Park they are working to improve the road surface, shoulders and drainage.

The road commission said a detour route will be established as construction moves along.

The project should be completed by Sept. 20 if the weather cooperates.
