Years-long Michigan I-275 construction project back underway


Lane and ramp closures will be initiated near Detroit for the next month as crews return to Interstate 275 for construction season. 

This construction project involves a complete rebuild of 24 miles of I-275 through the Detroit, Michigan area, including the construction of sidewalks, bridge improvements, and interchange improvements. The project is expected to take years to complete and is currently in the first stage of phase two. The project began in the summer of 2021. 

This year, the Michigan Department of Transportation will be rebuilding southbound I-275 from Six Mile to Northline Road. Bridge and ramp work are expected to be completed as well. These improvements will require the following closures:

February 21st-25th, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.: Rolling lane closures from Livonia to Romulus

February 26 – March 5th: one lane open on northbound I-275, two lanes open on southbound I-275

March 5th: Crews will shift southbound traffic into the reconfigured northbound lanes. This will result in intermittent lane closures. 

March 7th: Two lanes will be open on both north and southbound I-275. Barrels will be placed on northbound I-275 near Eureka Road and on southbound I-275 near Seven Mile Road. All on and off ramps will be accessible with median crossover ramps except when crews are working on specific ramps.
