Work to close WB I-94 from I-75 to Lodge Freeway, EB I-94 from I-96 to I-75


DETROIT – Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT) contract crews will be adjusting hangars on the new Second Avenue bridge and setting steel bridge beams on the Grand River Avenue overpass above I-94 this weekend.

The work will require closing westbound I-94 from I-75 to M-10 (Lodge Freeway) and eastbound I-94 from I-96 to I-75 starting at 9 p.m. Friday (Nov. 18). The closures will only happen if the weather allows crews to work.

Both directions of I-94 are expected to reopen by 5 a.m. Monday (Nov. 21).
