BACKGROUND:
MDOT staff will share project details on the upcoming replacement of the Brush Street overpass above I-94. This $11.6 million replacement will improve safety by rebuilding the overpass that was originally constructed in 1955 and has never been replaced. This work, part of the I-94 modernization project in Detroit, is expected to begin in April and end in November.

The I-94 modernization project will improve safety and mobility by modernizing roughly 7 miles of I-94 between Conner Avenue and I-96. Included in the modernization is utility and bridge replacement, improvements to freeway interchanges, and construction of an additional freeway lane.
