MDOT officials say traffic will be detoured on southbound I-275 to eastbound Eureka Road, then northbound I-275 to eastbound/westbound I-94.
The detour may cause delays due to heavier traffic at the Eureka Road entrance to the Detroit Metro Airport, so residents should plan for extra time if they are driving in this area, or find an alternate route.
This work is apart of the Revive275 project, which is made possible through Whitmer’s Rebuilding Michigan Program.MORE NEWS: MDHHS Lifts No-Contact Recommendation In Huron River Chemical Spill
