The orange barrels are coming out in Madison Heights on Monday.

According to the Michigan Department of Transportation, crews will begin repairs on the I-75 bridges over 12 Mile Road. The repair work will require around the clock lane closures on 12 Mile Road under I-75 until mid-March. There will also be lane closures on I-75, which are expected to begin several days later.

Initially, northbound I-75 will have lane closures and traffic shifts for 10 days. In addition, the eastbound 12 Mile Roadloop ramp to northbound I-75 will be closed. When that work is completed, southbound I-75 will have two lanes open with a traffic shift. The westbound 12 Mile Roadloop ramp to southbound I-75 will be closed for an additional 10 days.  

Motorists are reminded that while restrictions on I-75 are in effect, work is taking place below and progress is being made.
