    Big Beaver and 14 Mile Road DDI Updates (4/13/2021)

    The Big Beaver Road DDI is progressing as crews have restrictions in place to install the ADA ramps for pedestrians within the interchange.  Once complete, the interchange will be safer for all!   

    The left lane of eastbound and westbound 14 Mile Road will remain closed east of I-75 through mid-summer as crews await equipment arrival to complete the required signal installation and open all lanes.  

    DDI’s are a safer option for both motorists and pedestrians. To learn more about DDI’s including how to navigate them please visit our Project Highlights - DDI Edition page under “Travel I-75”.   Stay up-to-date with information about the project by signing for email blasts or following our social media channels.
