Hold On To Your Patience – Southfield Construction To Begin

DETROIT (WWJ) – If you travel the Southfield Freeway as part of your daily routine, you may need to pack a little extra patience beginning Monday.

As WWJ’s Marty Buffalini tells us, a major construction project gets under way.

Here’s what you can expect as the  long-awaited, much dreaded, but much-needed construction starts Monday: 

  • Freeway closures along on Southfield between Ford Road and I-96. Just one lane will be open in both directions (around the clock) until Autumn.   
  • Southfield Fwy. -the northbound ramp to Plymouth Rd. in both directions will be closed down.
  • The Southfield Fwy. service drive (northbound and southbound) at 8 Mile Rd. in both direction is closed down .
  • The Southfield Fwy. -southbound ramp -to 8 Mile Rd. east and westbound closed until end of October.
  • The Southfield Fwy. -northbound ramp to McNichols in both directions is closed until May 15.
