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.
Follow I94Detroit on Twitter for more information and the latest updates on the road closures.
MDOT will move the new Second Avenue bridge over I-94 in Detroit July 22-29, weather permitting.
– The bridge move will require closing both directions of I-94 btwn I-75 and the Lodge for 7 days!
