Southbound I-275 will have only one lane open from 7 Mile to 6 Mile roads during this work, which may be delayed for a day or two, depending on weather.
Other lane and ramp closures:
- The I-275 Metro Trail will be closed next week for repairs between 6 Mile and 7 Mile roads.

In mid-October, there will be a two-day closure of the westbound Eureka Road ramp to southbound I-275 and the eastbound Eureka Road to northbound I-275 for concrete surface coating on the bridge railing.

By mid-December, northbound and southbound I-275 traffic should be reopened to three lanes in each direction. In 2024, there will be a few weeks of work involving bridge epoxy overlays, permanent pavement markings, etc.
This work is part of the Revive275 project. Based on economic modeling, this $281 million investment is expected to directly and indirectly support 3,267 jobs. Project information can be found at Revive275.org. Funding for this project 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 improve the condition of the state's infrastructure.
