    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!   

    Beginning at 7 a.m. Friday, April 16 and ending at 5 p.m. Monday, April 19, crews will close 14 Mile Road under I-75, and all ramps at the interchange. This closure is needed to allow crews to safely place all 14 Mile Road traffic into its new configuration and open all ramp movements from I-75. Upon opening, 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.

    Reminder: Ongoing bridge work requires closing I-75 this weekend in Oakland County

    Please pardon our noise for this weekend's work: crews will begin at 11 p.m. Friday and continue during the overnight hours and throughout the weekend. 

    **During the closure, northbound I-75 traffic will be detoured west on 8 Mile Road to northbound M-1 (Woodward Avenue), then eastbound I-696 back to northbound I-75. Southbound I-75 traffic will use westbound I-696 to southbound M-1, then eastbound 8 Mile Road back to southbound I-75.**  

    Weather permitting, overpass replacement will require both directions of I-75 to be closed between M-102 (8 Mile Road) and I-696. The weekend closure is needed to allow crews to safely set bridge beams on the Highland Avenue pedestrian bridge in the city of Hazel Park.
