OAKLAND COUNTY, Mich. – Segment 3 of the I-75 modernization project will enter a new stage starting Wednesday morning.

Beginning at 9 a.m. Tuesday, April 7, northbound I-75 will be reduced to one lane to allow crews to shift all traffic to the southbound lanes between M-102 (8 Mile Road) and I-696.

By late afternoon, this new configuration will be in place to allow for the reconstruction of the northbound lanes.

Two lanes of northbound and southbound I-75 will be open during peak travel times during the 2020 construction season.

In addition, the northbound I-75 ramp to eastbound I-696 will close until early November. Ramp traffic will be detoured east on 8 Mile Road to northbound Van Dyke Avenue, then to eastbound I-696.
