Reporting Gary Lundy
DETROIT (WWJ) – Before you begin your morning commute, you should know that a two-year, ten-million dollar road project, gets back on track Monday.
WWJ Newsradio 950′s Gary Lundy reports that the project includes the repair of seven bridges along I-94, in western Wayne County.
The work will focus on the eastbound and westbound I-94 bridges over I-275 in Romulus. Crews will resurface the road, install new barrier walls, and also make structural repairs.
Starting Monday, crews will close one lane of northbound and southbound I-275 under I-94 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. daily for one week to install temporary barrier wall on the shoulder. After the barrier wall is in place, all lanes of I-275 will remain open during peak travel times.
Afterwards, crews will begin installing the I-94 traffic shift. Initially, two lanes of eastbound I-94 traffic will be sharing the westbound bridge; one lane of eastbound I-94 will be shifted right to access the ramps at the I-275 interchange.
By mid-April, traffic will be shifted on I-94 to maintain three lanes in each direction during peak travel times. During off-peak hours, additional lanes may be closed to accelerate repair.
The work is expected to wrap up in September.
