April 3, 2012 -- Work resumes Monday, April 9, on a two-year, $10 million investment to repair seven bridges along I-94 in western Wayne County. In 2012, work will focus on the eastbound and westbound I-94 bridges over I-275 in the city of Romulus. All work is expected to be completed in September.

By mid-April, traffic will be shifted on I-94 to maintain three lanes in each direction during peak travel times. During off-peak hours, additional lanes may be closed to accelerate repair.

Starting Monday, crews will close one lane of northbound and southbound I-275 under I-94 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. daily for one week to install temporary barrier wall on the shoulder. After the barrier wall is in place, all lanes of I-275 will remain open during peak travel times. Afterwards, crews will begin installing the I-94 traffic shift. Initially, two lanes of eastbound I-94 traffic will be sharing the westbound bridge; one lane of eastbound I-94 will be shifted right to access the ramps at the I-275 interchange.

Work on the I-94 bridges over I-275 includes a new surface, installing new barrier walls and structural repairs.
