Romulus, MI - Southbound I-275 ramps to eastbound and westbound I-94 will be closed starting at 5 a.m. Monday, July 11, through early August.
Crews need to rebuild the area where southbound I-275 is currently crossing the work zone to exit to I-94. In addition to rebuilding the three lanes and shoulders, crews will be improving the drainage in that area and surface coating the concrete of the southbound I-275 bridge to eastbound I-94 that was rebuilt last year, along with maintenance work on the westbound I-94 bridge over the exits (cleaning, painting, etc.).
All traffic will be detoured further south on southbound I-275 to eastbound Eureka Road, then northbound I-275 to eastbound/westbound I-94.
This closure and detour will cause heavier traffic at the Eureka Road entrance to Metro Airport, which may cause delays. Plan extra time or an alternate route.

Based on economic modeling, the Revive275 project and its $270 million investment is expected to directly and indirectly support 3,429 jobs. Project information can be found at Revive275.org.
Funding for this project is made possible by Gov. Gretchen Whitmer's 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.
