Lane Closure On WB I-94 In Wayne Co Starts April 29, 2024

Metro Detroit Traffic NewsBelleville, MI - Starting April 29, crews will close the outside lane of westbound I-94 from Belleville to Rawsonville roads in Wayne County to complete a high-friction surface treatment.

Work started in August to equip the left lane of westbound I-94 with digital infrastructure to support the I-94 connected and automated vehicles (CAV) corridor pilot project. Crews expect to complete the treatment on May 4. This work is weather dependent, and delays may require additional closures beyond May 4.

When this work is complete, the CAV corridor pilot will be fully operational, and Cavnue, the private company developing this project in partnership with MDOT, will begin testing CAVs along the corridor. During testing, advanced signs will notify drivers that the left lane of westbound I-94 is closed to traffic from Belleville to Rawsonville roads. Testing will only be conducted with dedicated test vehicles during off-peak hours.

Outside the testing phases, the left lane will be available to all road users. Drivers who choose to use this lane will not be able to access the Belleville Rest Area or exit at Belleville Road due to the placement of the delineator posts that separate the technology-enables express lane from the general-purpose lanes on I-94.

See: map of area.

More information about the I-94 CAV corridor pilot is available on MDOT’s website, including a video explaining the goals of both the pilot and future plans to provide a CAV lane for road users.
