Northbound M-5 to close between 12 Mile, Maple roads for construction

Southbound M-5 construction is complete


Southbound M-5 is back open to traffic between Maple Road and 12 Mile Road. 

Crews will now start work on the same stretch of northbound M-5. Drivers can expect this portion of the road to be closed for at least a week starting Monday, May 15, 2017. 

During the northbound M-5 construction the westbound M-5 ramp to northbound M-5 will be closed. Moreover, the northbound I-275 ramp to northbound M-5 will be closed. 

The Michigan Department of Transportation said all mile roads crossing northbound M-5 will have at least one lane open through the intersections crossing M-5. Finally, the eastbound and westbound I-96 ramps to northbound M-5 will be open to 12 Mile Road, where traffic must exit.

Sky4 was up over M-5 on Monday to get a look at the progress:
