Changes coming to segment 3 of the I-75 modernization project in Oakland County

Weather permitting, work on segment 3 of the I-75 modernization project in Oakland County enters another stage on Saturday, Sept. 14. Scheduled to begin at 4 a.m. on Saturday, crews will begin the process to remove the current southbound I-75 right-lane closure, open the westbound I-696 ramp to southbound I-75, and close the left lane on northbound and southbound I-75 between 8 Mile and 13 Mile roads. The continuous left-lane closures will remain in place until late October. During the overnight hours, two lanes may be closed in each direction over the next week.       

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.
