Bridge work requires closing I-94 between Conner Avenue and I-75 in Detroit this weekend

June 12, 2018 -- Weather permitting, contracting crews will be setting bridge beams at the M-3 (Gratiot Avenue) overpass starting at 9 p.m. Friday, June 15. This work will require closing I-94 between Conner Avenue and I-75 for the weekend. All lanes of the freeway are expected to reopen by 5 a.m. Monday, June 18.

In addition to setting bridge beams, crews will be performing foundation work at the Chene Street overpass. Both activities require the full closure for safety reasons.

During this closure, westbound through-traffic will be detoured to westbound M-102 (Eight Mile Road) to southbound I-75 and back to westbound I-94. Westbound I-94 will have one lane open to Conner Avenue for local access. Eastbound traffic will be detoured north on I-75 to eastbound M-102 and back to eastbound I-94.

All ramps along eastbound and westbound I-94 will be closed between Conner Avenue and I-75. In addition, the following ramps will also be closed and reopened by 5 a.m. Monday, June 18:

  • Eastbound I-96 to eastbound I-94,
  • Northbound and southbound M-10 (Lodge Freeway) to eastbound I-94,
  • Northbound and southbound I-75 to eastbound I-94, and
  • All entrance ramps from Nine Mile Road to Chalmers Street to westbound I-94.

Crews will begin closing all surface street ramps at 7 p.m., with freeway-to-freeway interchange ramps closures beginning at 9 p.m. More information is available at
