TAYLOR (WWJ) – Know before you go! A $1.8 million road work project Downriver is expected to begin Monday.

The Michigan Department of Transportation says access to and from I-75 at Eureka Road in the city of Taylor will be improved following a project to reconstruct the ramps at the interchange.

Work on the project is scheduled to begin Monday, April 22, and be completed by Labor Day.

MDOT says full ramp closures are necessary because there simply is not enough space to accommodate traffic at the same time the pavement is being rebuilt.

Tentatively, the ramps will be closed in the following order, each for a maximum of 45 days:

  • Eureka Road entrance to southbound I-75
  • Northbound I-75 exit to Eureka Road
  • Eureka Road entrance to northbound I-75

The southbound I-75 exit ramp to Eureka Road will not be rebuilt, just patched, and will be closed for only one weekend.

MDOT says impacts on I-75 will be minimal with only single-lane closures between the hours of 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. on weekdays, and at all times on weekends when necessary.
