Traffic Alert: Weekend Road Work

DETROIT (WWJ) – Know before you go! Aside from a few lane closures, Metro Detroit freeways will be mostly clear of construction work this weekend.

The following projects were announced by MDOT. As always, some of this work may be postponed due to weather.


In Wayne County, the right lane of northbound and southbound I-75 is closed at Dix-Toledo Road for bridge work. The right lanes will remain closed until November as crews work this summer to construct a new overpass and rebuild one mile of I-75 between King and Sibley roads.


In Oakland County, eastbound and westbound I-96 will be reduced to a single lane between Milford and South Hill roads from 7 a.m. Saturday until 6 p.m. Sunday for ongoing work on the bridges that carry I-96 over Milford Road and the Huron Valley Trail. After 6 p.m. Sunday, three lanes will open in each direction with traffic shifted to the right.

In addition, the westbound I-96 ramp to southbound Milford Road, and the southbound Milford Road entrance ramp to eastbound I-96 will be closed until early October.


In Macomb County, the left lane of westbound I-696 will be closed at Van Dyke Ave. from 9 a.m. until 3 p.m. on Friday for median barrier wall work.


In Wayne County, a single lane will be closed on the two-lane ramp from eastbound I-94 to Michigan Avenue from 7 a.m. until 5 p.m. on Saturday for bridge maintenance.

I-94/M-39 interchange:

In Wayne County, the left two lanes of northbound M-39 will closed from Allen Road to Outer Drive from 5 a.m. Saturday until 5 a.m. Monday for ongoing interchange work. During the same time frame, the northbound M-39 exit to Van Born Road will be closed.

US-24 (Telegraph Road):

In Wayne County, beginning Wednesday, March 21, northbound and southbound Telegraph Road will be reduced to a single lane between Vreeland and West roads for ongoing reconstruction. All traffic will be shifted to the northbound side of the roadway. Read more on this construction project, here.
