Portion Of I-94 In Detroit To Close This Weekend 4/8 - 4/11/2022

Detroit, MI - Weather permitting, Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT) contract crews will be removing the Grand River overpass above I-94 in Detroit this weekend.

This work will require closing I-94 between I-75 and I-96 starting at 9 p.m. Friday, April 8. Both directions of I-94 are expected to reopen by 5 a.m. Monday, April 11.   

Westbound I-94 traffic will be detoured via southbound I-75 and westbound I-96 back to westbound I-94. Eastbound I-94 traffic will be detoured via eastbound I-96 to northbound I-75 back to eastbound I-94. All entrance ramps to eastbound I-94 from 30th Street to M-10 (Lodge Freeway), and westbound I-94 from Mt. Elliott to Linwood streets, will be closed by 9 p.m. Friday and will reopen by 5 a.m. Monday.   

Starting at 5 a.m. Monday, the following closures will remain in place until late May:

        - The right lane of westbound I-94 from Linwood Street to I-96, and
        - The westbound I-94 ramp to eastbound and westbound I-96.

Ramp traffic will be detoured using southbound I-75 to I-96. Detours will be posted for local traffic using Grand River Avenue over I-94.  

The new overpass will replace the original structure built in 1952. All work on this $14.6 million investment is scheduled to be completed in early 2023.
