Weather permitting, Michigan Department of Transportation says crews will be adjusting hangars on the new Second Avenue bridge and setting steel bridge beams on the Grand River Avenue overpass above I-94 this weekend.

This work will require closing westbound I-94 from I-75 to M-10 (Lodge Freeway) and eastbound I-94 from I-96 to I-75 starting at 9 p.m. Friday, Nov. 18. Both directions of I-94 are expected to reopen by 5 a.m. Monday, Nov. 21.    

Westbound I-94 traffic will be detoured via southbound I-75 and westbound I-96 back to westbound I-94. All entrance ramps to westbound I-94 from Mt. Elliott to John R. streets will close. 

Eastbound I-94 traffic will be detoured via eastbound I-96 and northbound I-75 back to eastbound I-94. All entrance ramps to eastbound I-94 from 30th Street to M-10 (Lodge Freeway) will close. 

Ramps in both directions will close by 9 p.m. Friday and reopen by 5 a.m. Monday.        

Traffic on northbound and southbound M-10 (Lodge Freeway) will have access to westbound I-94 over the weekend.
