TRAFFIC RESTRICTIONS:
Miller Road will be reduced to three lanes (one lane in each direction with a dedicated center turn lane) over I-75. During removal of the damaged beam, southbound I-75 will be reduced to two lanes, and traffic will be detoured onto the I-69 entrance ramp and reenter I-75 south of the Miller Road overpass. This work will be completed primarily during overnight hours.

SAFETY BENEFITS:
This work involves repairing two beams that sustained damage during a high-load hit that occurred in December 2016. The new beams will ensure the structural integrity of the bridge and allow all lanes of traffic on the Miller Road overpass to reopen.
