Drivers warned that I-94 in Detroit to shut down for seven days


The Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT) is asking drivers to plan ahead for a major week-long interstate closure in Detroit.

Starting at 4 a.m. on Friday, July 22, I-94 will be closed in both directions between I-75 and M-10 (Lodge Freeway).

Additionally,  at 1 a.m. on July 22, all entrance ramps to eastbound I-94 will be closed from 30th Street (just west of Warren Avenue) to Chrysler Drive while all entrance ramps to westbound I-94 will be closed from Mt. Elliott Street to Trumbull Avenue.

MDOT plans to reopen I-94 and all closed ramps at 4 a.m. on July 29.

The interstate closure will allow MDOT to move the Second Avenue bridge over I-94.

MDOT has provided detour information for the interstate closure:

During the closure, eastbound I-94 traffic will be diverted to southbound M-10, then northbound I-75 back to eastbound I-94. Westbound I-94 traffic will follow southbound I-75, then westbound I-96 back to westbound I-94.
