SAGINAW COUNTY, MI  – The Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT) will invest $22.9 million to reconstruct 1 mile of I-75 at the I-675 junction through Saginaw County.

The I-75 work zone is located from Exit 154 (Adams Street) to south of Exit 160 (Saginaw Road). The I-675 work zone extends about 1 mile from I-75 in Zilwaukee. Work includes repair and reconstruction of multiple bridges and ramps, and both concrete and asphalt resurfacing.

MDOT crews expect to close southbound I-75 for approximately 15 minutes around 10 a.m. on May 23 to install pavement markings on southbound I-75 and shift traffic. During this time, southbound I-75 will be closed from south of Saginaw Road to Exit 155 in Zilwaukee, and the southbound I-75 ramp to I-675 will be closed.

Following installation of the pavement markings, southbound I-75 traffic will be shifted to the northbound I-75 roadway. A moveable barrier wall will be used for the duration of the project to maintain three open lanes of traffic in the peak direction of travel.

SAFETY BENEFITS: This work will result in a smoother driving surface for motorists and improved bridge structures, maintaining safety.
