M-14/I-96 Project In Wayne County Begins Friday, May 10, 2024

Metro Detroit Traffic NewsPlymouth Twp., MI - The Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT) M-14/I-96 project between Sheldon and Newburgh roads is scheduled to begin this weekend, weather permitting.

This three-year, $139 million investment includes rebuilding the freeway with new concrete pavement from Sheldon Road to Newburgh Road, including the ramps at the M-14/I-96/I-275 interchange. Additionally, the work will include maintenance on 17 bridges and the rebuilding of the I-275 Metro Trail along M-14 from Edward Hines Drive to I-275. Bridge work and shoulder widening will be happening throughout the summer, then next year eastbound M-14/I-96 will be rebuilt, followed by the westbound lanes in 2026. 

Northville Road will be closed over M-14 for bridge work beginning at 9 a.m. Friday, May 10, for approximately one month. 

Eastbound and westbound M-14/I-96 will be closed between Sheldon Road and I-275 from 8 p.m. Friday, May 10, to 5 a.m. Monday, May 13, for bridge work. The following ramps will also be closed:

  • Eastbound M-14 to southbound I-275,
  • Westbound M-14 to Sheldon Road,
  • Northbound I-275 to westbound M-14,
  • Southbound I-275 to westbound M-14, and
  • Sheldon Road to eastbound M-14. 

Westbound M-14/I-96 traffic will be detoured to northbound or southbound I-275:

  • Northbound I-275 traffic can go further north to westbound I-96, then take southbound US-23 to eastbound or westbound M-14.
  • Southbound I-275 traffic can go to westbound I-94, then take northbound US-23 to eastbound or westbound M-14. 

Eastbound M-14/I-96 traffic will be detoured in Ann Arbor using southbound US-23 to eastbound I-94, then northbound I-275 to eastbound I-96. 

Local traffic will be able to take eastbound M-14 up to Sheldon Road.

Roughly 66 percent of this project's funding is made possible by the Rebuilding Michigan program to rebuild the state highways and bridges that are critical to the state's economy and carry the most traffic. The investment strategy is aimed at fixes that result in longer useful lives and improves the condition of the state's infrastructure. The other 33 percent of the project's budget is being covered by the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law

Based on economic modeling, this $139 million investment is expected to directly and indirectly support 1,974 jobs.

The project consultant is expected to launch a project website on Monday, May 13, at m14reconstruction.org, providing project details and contact information.
