In addition to the closures listed above, M-10 will be closed this weekend between Jefferson Avenue and I-75. It will reopen at 5 a.m. Monday, May 8.

M-85 (Fort Street) will have one lane open at a time over M-10 for repairs on other lanes. The pedestrian bridge over M-10 near M-85 will also be removed during the summer.
