The next phase of a major four-year rebuild of I-275 in Wayne County restarts this week, and will trigger some ramp closures for several months.
The Revive 275 project started back in 2021, with the expected completion coming in 2025. MDOT estimates the project is at 63% complete as the next phase begins through the summer months.
Beginning Monday, April 24, the Revive 275 project is moving into the phase of repairing and rebuilding over 25 miles of road, bridges and ramps. This phase will go through late July.
