Nine Mile Rd Above I-75 In Oakland County To Close Monday October 5, 2020

Hazel Park, MI - Progress on the I-75 modernization project continues next week when crews close the Nine Mile Road overpass above I-75 in the city of Hazel Park.

Fast facts:

  • The Nine Mile Road overpass above I-75 will close at 6 a.m. Monday, Oct. 5, until early November.
  • The closure is needed for bridge approach, intersection and pier work.

The overpass is scheduled to close at 6 a.m. on Monday, Oct. 5. In addition, crews will close the southbound I-75 exit ramp to Nine Mile Road, open the southbound I-75 exit to M-102 (Eight Mile Road), and open the southbound I-75 service drive from John R. Road to Meyers Avenue. The southbound service drive from Nine Mile Road to John R. Road will remain closed during this work. The overpass, the service drive and the exit ramp are expected to reopen in early November.

A new center pier for the Nine Mile Road bridge will be relocated more than 10 feet to the east. The I-75 modernization project is designed to improve safety along the corridor, including flattening and lengthening the curve at Nine Mile Road. The underground foundation of the new center pier was built when the Nine Mile Road bridge was replaced after it collapsed due to the July 2009 tanker fire incident.
