Overall I-75 project completion date:
Drivers should expect lane closures beginning at 7 p.m. with I-75 completely closed from South Huron River Drive to I-275 by 9 p.m. Friday, Nov. 4. Crews intend to reopen I-75 by 5 a.m. Monday, Nov. 7.
Traffic will be detoured via I-275, I-94, and M-39. All entrance ramps between the project limits will also be closed during demolition work.
Based on economic modeling, this investment is expected to directly and indirectly support 356 jobs.
These improvements will provide increased safety and mobility in this area of I-75, which is a significant local and national trade corridor.
