Southfield Freeway Bridge Reconstruction

DETROIT (WWJ) – Traffic Alert: after 9:00 Monday morning, McNichols and Schoolcraft roads will be closed to traffic where they cross over the Southfield Freeway.

That’s because both overpasses will be prepped for demolition this coming weekend.

This will not impact traffic on the Southfield Freeway today or for the week ahead. But this coming weekend, both directions of the Southfield will be closed to traffic from 8-Mile to I-96 starting Friday night into next Monday morning so crews can tear those bridges down. The ramps along that part — 8 Mile Road, Seven Mile Road, McNichols, Grand River and Schoolcraft — will also be closed. These are two of the 24 bridges being repaired or replaced as part of the big $80 million Southfield project on the books this summer.
