DETROIT (WWJ) – If you’re planning to drive through Detroit this weekend, you might need to take a detour.
The Michigan Department of Transportation is closing down ramps at the I-75 and M-10 interchange this weekend as part of a $3.6 million reconstruction project.
The northbound I-75 ramp to northbound M-10 will be closed at 9 p.m. Friday to allow for reconstruction work. It is expected to reopen by fall.
The southbound I-75 ramp to southbound M-10 will also be closed for repairs starting this weekend. It is expected to reopen in late May.
The northbound M-10 ramp to southbound I-75 will be closed this weekend only, from 9 p.m. Friday to 5 a.m. Monday, and then closed for repairs during the month of June.
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.
