If you drive through Detroit on Interstate 94, be prepared for change this weekend.
Weather permitting, Michigan Department of Transportation contract crews will be working on the new Second Avenue bridge over I-94, as well as continuing work on the Grand River Avenue overpass above I-94. For safety, this work will require closing eastbound and westbound I-94 between I-75 and M-10 (Lodge Freeway) starting at 5 a.m. Friday, Dec. 16. Both directions of I-94 are expected to reopen by 5 a.m. Tuesday, Dec. 20.
Work on the Grand River Avenue overpass is restricted to weekend hours, resulting in extending the closure on I-94 between I-75 and I-96. Work on the Grand River Avenue overpass starts at 9 p.m. Friday and ends by 9 p.m. Sunday.
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 be closed.
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 be closed.
Ramps in both directions will close by 5 a.m. Friday and reopen by 5 a.m. Tuesday.
Traffic on northbound and southbound M-10 (Lodge Freeway) will have access to westbound I-94 during daylight hours on Friday and Monday.
