Limited traffic flows in both directions along I-94 near Coloma this week. Highway travel has been significantly reduced since the statewide stay-at-home order was signed by Gov. Gretchen Whitmer, to limit spread of the coronavirus.

The governor’s order to residents last week to stay at home has had a huge impact on the amount of traffic on the roads.

Michigan has seen a 50 percent or more reduction in travel when compared to the same date last year, said Nick Schirripa, spokesperson with the Michigan Department of Transportation.
