Metro Detroit Traffic NewsPlymouth Twp., MI - The Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT) is planning an upcoming weekend closure for the M-14/I-96 project between Sheldon and Newburgh roads for continued demolition of the Schoolcraft Road bridge and other bridge work over M-14. This work is weather dependent and subject to change.

From 8 p.m. Friday, June 14, to 5 a.m. Monday, June 17, eastbound and westbound M-14/I-96 will be closed between Sheldon Road and I-275 for bridge deck demolition. The following ramps will also be closed:

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 southbound US-23 to eastbound or westbound M-14.
  • Southbound I-275 traffic can go to westbound I-94, then 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 use eastbound M-14 to Sheldon Road. 

At 5 a.m. Monday, June 17, after M-14/I-96 reopens, the following lane restrictions will begin:

  • Eastbound M-14/I-96 will have two lanes open from Sheldon to Haggerty roads through early July.
  • Westbound I-96/M-14 will have two lanes open from Newburgh Road to I-275, then one lane open from I-275 to Beck Road through late July.
  • The northbound and southbound I-275 ramps to westbound M-14 will be closed through late July.
  • The westbound I-96 ramp to northbound I-275 will have one lane open through late July. 

Beginning Monday, June 24, through early July:

  • The Newburgh Road ramp to westbound M-14/I-96 will be closed.
  • The westbound I-96 service drive (Schoolcraft Road) will have two lanes open from Newburgh Road to the westbound I-96 ramp.
  • The northbound and southbound Sheldon Road ramps to westbound M-14 will be closed.

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. 

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.
