Southbound US-24 (Telegraph Road) will be closed from 5 Mile Road/Fenkell Avenue to I-96 in Wayne County for approximately three weeks for bridge repair over the Tarabusi Creek, north of I-96.
The posted detour includes eastbound M-102 (8 Mile Road) to southbound M-39 to westbound I-96, then to southbound US-24.

The Michigan Department of Transportation is investing $1.8 million to perform bridge repairs on US-24 (Telegraph Road) over the Tarabusi Creek between I-96 and Five Mile Road/Fenkell Avenue. Work includes removing and replacing support beams, patching the driving surface, and other repairs.
This work will extend the life of the bridge, improve the safety of the roadway and ensure long-term use.
