Crews from the Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT) will demolish the southbound I-75 bridge over Coolidge Highway beginning Friday.

Both directions of the Coolidge Highway under I-75 will close for the bridge demolition beginning at 9 a.m. One lane will reopen going northbound on Coolidge Highway by 5 p.m. on May 3.

Southbound Coolidge Highway will remain closed through the end of June following the demolition, officials said. Residential streets will still be accessible amid the road work.
