Shevlin Avenue bridge is now open!
We are proud to share the reopening of the Shevlin Avenue bridge. This bridge was demolished in late February 2021 and rebuilt that spring; however, it could not be opened until crews rebuilt the southbound service drive and added a water main for the City of Hazel Park. Crews completed the water main and laid temporary paving material at the end of 2021, and this spring and early summer poured the permanent material allowing the bridge and surrounding service drives to reopen.
Thank you for your ongoing patience while this project continues making progress. For more information and project updates, visit our website at www.Modernize75.com.
Interchange improvements require closing the westbound I-696 ramp to southbound I-75 on Thursday, July 7
The westbound I-696 ramp to southbound I-75 will be closed July 7 until mid-October for ongoing interchange improvements.
The closure is needed to allow for crews to rebuild the connection between the westbound to southbound and westbound to northbound ramps to accommodate the new “braid” design on the northbound ramp.
Ramp traffic will be detoured to southbound M-53 (Van Dyke Avenue), then westbound M-102 (Eight Mile Road) to access southbound I-75.
Beginning at 6 a.m. Thursday, July 7, crews will close the westbound I-696 ramp to southbound I-75. During the ramp closure, the posted detour directs traffic onto southbound M-53 (Van Dyke Avenue), then westbound M-102 (Eight Mile Road) back to southbound I-75. The ramp is expected to reopen by mid-October.
Crews will be working to rebuild the connection of the interchange ramps in conjunction with the new braid design. This design will eliminate the merge/weave condition that previously existed by separating the movements. The northbound I-75 exit ramp to 11 Mile Road will braid under the new I-696 bridge on the northbound service drive. When this portion of the project opens to traffic in November, incoming I-696 traffic to northbound I-75 will utilize the new bridge over the 11 Mile Road exit, resulting in safer movements.
Gardenia Avenue Bridge is now open to through traffic
The Gardenia Avenue Bridge was demolished in early 2022 and has now reopened to through traffic. While crews are continuing work on the service drives surrounding the new bridge, traffic will be open to reconnect the east and west sides of Gardenia Avenue over I-75.
