Mount Hope Road from the US 127 underpass to the MSU Commuter Lot 89 (I think they mean Farm Lane) will close at 8:30 this morning through early afternoon.

Sounds like the Mount Hope-Harrison intersection will be closed to traffic today, too, for road improvements.

Motorists are asked to drive with caution through this area and you might find it useful to take a different route to get where you're headed.

The CIinton County Road Commission has a deal with the City of East Lansing to apply a 'fog seal' to the road.

I had no idea what a fog seal is, so I searched the interwebs and found this:

"A fog seal is an application of a specially formulated asphalt emulsion (a thin liquid oil) to an existing asphalt pavement surface. A fog seal gets its name from its spray application, sometimes referred to as “fogging"..Fog seals are low-cost and are used to restore flexibility to an existing HMA pavement surface."

So now we know.
