DETROIT – Both directions of I-94 will be shut down this weekend between I-96 and Michigan Avenue (US-12) in Detroit so crews can work on a section of the concrete and two bridges.
UPDATE: The closure has been postponed due to weather.
The Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT) announced the planned closure on Wednesday, explaining work needs to be done on a railroad bridge near Livernois Road, concrete needs to be removed near Warren Avenue, and steel repairs are needed on the 24th Street bridge.
- The closure will start at 9 p.m. Friday, Jan. 10.
- The stretch of I-94 is expected to be back open to traffic by 5 a.m. Monday, Jan. 13.
- Of course, this is all weather dependant.

MDOT’s suggested detours:
- Eastbound I-94 detour: Eastbound Michigan Avenue to northbound Rosa Parks Boulevard, then westbound I-96 to eastbound I-94.
- Westbound I-94 detour: Eastbound I-96 to southbound Rosa Parks Boulevard, then westbound Michigan Avenue to westbound I-94.
