Traffic Alert: Total Closure Of I-75 In Wayne County

BROWNSTOWN TWP. (WWJ) – It’s a “know before you go” kind of weekend if you plan on driving on I-75 through Wayne County.

The Michigan Department of Transportation said the demolition of the existing Dix-Toledo Road overpasses above I-75 in Wayne County will require a full weekend closure of the freeway.

Beginning at 9 p.m. Friday, April 27, both directions of I-75 will be closed between the Fort Street/Schaefer Highway exit in Detroit, and the Fort Street exit near Rockwood.

All freeway traffic will be directed to use M-85 (Fort Street) during the full closure. MDOT says I-75 is expected to open by 9 p.m. Sunday, April 29.

For emergency responders, one lane of southbound I-75 will be available from the Fort Street/Schaefer Highway exit to Eureka Road. The entrance ramp from Sibley Road to northbound I-75 will be open.

Motorists are reminded that an alternate route using I-94 and I-275 for both directions is available over the weekend.

The demolition is part of an $18 million investment to modernize the Dix-Toledo Road/I-75 interchange in Brownstown Township. The entire project is expected to be completed by December.
