Closures and Detours

Crooks Road ramps will be closed for a short duration today, December 9th, to move the milling machine across the roadway.

The double lane closures on southbound I-75 from Coolidge to 13 Mile from 8pm to 6am is progressing, and expected to occure every night (Monday-Sunday) until December 15, 2018.  We thank you for your continued patience on this very important project.

Maintenance work on the I-75 bridge over Rochester Road has been progressing well.  On Decemer 7th the contractor will begin pouring concrete.  This is expected to take one day, with up to five days to "cure" the concrete, when no work can take place.  Workers will monitor the concrete pour, but unable to work during this time in the work zone area.  After that is completed, the area will be restored and is expected to be opened to traffic by the end of the week of December 14th.

In preparation for upcoming work on I-75, the I-75 bridge over Rochester Road requires mainteanance to allow for two-way traffic on SB I-75 roadway during 2019 work.  The inside lane in both directions on Rochester Road will need to be closed for approximately two weeks to perform the work.  During this time alternate routes are advised.

Construction work is being conducted at various locations along I-75, from south of 13 Mile to north of Coolidge.  In order to protect motorists and our road workers, there are continuous lane closures along this stretch of I-75.  Opening the lanes for 1/2 mile segments, and then requiring motorists to merge back and forth is not a safe condition.  Even though it may not look like we are working, rest assured we are progressing on the much needed work, while battling this unpredictable weather.  All lanes are expected to be opened in mid-December, maybe around December 15th, weather permitting.  We appreciate your patience.

Work on Rochester Road Bridges

At around lunch time today, the contractor completed the concrete pouring.  This is expected to take up to five days to "cure" and settle, when no work can take place.  Workers will monitor this, but will be unable to work in this closed work zone area during this time.  After the concrete has cured, the area will be restored and is expected to be opened to traffic by the end of next week.
