If you need to be driving on Interstate 94 in and near Detroit in the next several days, expect there to be several slowdowns and closures.
The Michigan Department of Transportation says work on the interstate begins the morning of Friday, June 5, and ends the morning of Monday, May 8.
Eastbound I-94 will be closed from M-3 (Gratiot Avenue) in Detroit to I-696, including all on and off-ramps, from 5 a.m. Saturday to 10 p.m. Sunday. Eastbound I-94 traffic will take northbound M-3 (Gratiot Avenue) in Detroit to eastbound I-696, then back to eastbound I-94. This closure will allow crews to safely work across all lanes to apply hot mix asphalt for a smoother driving surface.
Other work planned for I-94 this weekend includes: Eastbound I-94 will have one lane open from Little Mack Avenue to 14 Mile Road from 5 a.m. Saturday to 5 a.m. Monday for resurfacing.
Eastbound I-94 will have one lane open from 21 Mile Road to M-19 (New Haven Road) from 4 a.m. Saturday to 5:30 p.m. Sunday for maintenance.
Westbound I-94 will have two lanes open from M-10 to M-1 (Woodward Avenue) for bridge work from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Friday, then only one lane open from 8 p.m. Friday to 5 a.m. Monday.
