April 16, 2012 -- The Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT) is reminding motorists that a project to repair 34 bridges between Hannan Road in Van Buren Township and 6 Mile Road near Northville Township begins this week. This $23.5 million project will result in freeway lane closures and overpass restrictions, and is expected to be completed in late November.

Starting Monday, April 16, crews will close the westbound Michigan Avenue ramp to northbound I-275 for two weeks with a detour posted. In addition, crews also will close the shoulder on the southbound I-275 exit ramp to Michigan Avenue.

Overpass work begins Tuesday with the eastbound Plymouth Road overpass above I-275 closed for two months. Also, lane restrictions will be in place for several weeks on Six Mile Road over I-275. There will be intermittent ramp closures at the I-275/6 Mile Road interchange on Tuesday.
