  • Northbound I-75 Big Beaver loop ramps - in preparation for the construction of the diverging diamond interchange (DDI) the westbound exit ramp and eastbound entrance ramps have been removed.  Motorists should exit to Big Beaver Road and use the nearest available crossover to go west on Big Beaver.  Motorists can enter northbound I-75 via westbound Big Beaver Road.

For the 2020 construction season, two lanes of traffic will be open in each direction with a temporary concrete barrier separating northbound and southbound traffic on the newly replaced northbound lanes on the freeway. This is the same configuration as last year, but on the new pavement, and on the northbound side of the freeway.  Alternate routes are based on individual destinations and preference, but suggestions will be posted soon.  We appreciate your patience and understanding as we work to deliver these much needed improvements in the safest manner possible.  Thank you!
