DETROIT, MI – We cannot grumble to much when it comes to road reconstruction in the Detroit metro area. Our roads are getting repaired in places that should have been done years ago. This weekend will see I-75 closed in both directions for a bridge demolition and further roadwork that needs to be completed.
Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT) contract crews will be demolishing the Bernhard Avenue pedestrian bridge over I-75, and performing road work this weekend. This will require closing northbound and southbound I-75 between M-102 (Eight Mile Road) and the I-75 Business Loop (Square Lake Road) beginning at 11 p.m. Friday, July 10. Both directions of I-75 are expected to reopen by 5 a.m. Monday, July 13.
During this closure, northbound I-75 traffic will be detoured via westbound M-102 (Eight Mile Road), northbound M-1 (Woodward Avenue), and eastbound Square Lake Road back to northbound I-75. All northbound entrance ramps to I-75 from M-8 (Davison Freeway) to Adams Road will be closed beginning at 9 p.m. Friday and will reopen by 5 a.m. Monday.
Southbound I-75 traffic will be detoured via westbound Square Lake Road, southbound M-1, and eastbound M-102 back to southbound I-75. All entrance ramps to southbound I-75 from M-59 to Nine Mile Road will be closed starting at 9 p.m. Friday and will reopen by 5 a.m. Monday.
I-75 ramps that are already closed due to the current construction configuration will remain closed after the freeway opens.
