The lane restrictions are needed for crews to construct temporary median crossovers for an eventual traffic shift next spring. In 2020, all I-75 traffic will be on the southbound side of the freeway between 11 Mile and 8 Mile roads with two lanes open in each direction separated by a temporary concrete barrier. This will allow for the rebuilding of the northbound lanes from 8 Mile Road to I-696, along with all northbound ramps, retaining walls and portions of the northbound service drive.

Reminder: Segment 3 of the I-75 modernization project in Oakland County begins Sunday, Aug. 11

Weather permitting, work on segment 3 of the I-75 modernization project in Oakland County will begin on Sunday, Aug. 11.

Starting at 3 p.m. Aug. 11, the right lane of southbound I-75 will be closed from 13 Mile to 8 Mile roads in order for crews to widen the shoulder for an eventual traffic shift. In addition to the single-lane closure, crews will close the following ramps:

            - Southbound I-75 exit to 8 Mile Road,

            - Southbound I-75 exit to 9 Mile Road,

Other 2019 work includes the construction of temporary median crossovers, the removal of the Dallas Road overpass above I-75, and work on the northbound service drive.        

In 2020, all I-75 traffic will be on the southbound side of the freeway between 11 Mile and 8 Mile roads with two lanes open in each direction separated by a temporary concrete barrier. This will allow for the rebuilding of the northbound lanes from 8 Mile Road to I-696, along with all northbound ramps, retaining walls and portions of the northbound service drive.
