BACKGROUND:
MDOT and Oakland Corridor Partners will share details on the 2020 construction of northbound I-75 from 8 Mile Road to I-696. The project includes rebuilding pavement, overpasses and retaining walls. In order to complete this quadrant in one construction season, all I-75 traffic will be sharing the southbound side of the freeway with two lanes maintained in each direction. Overpass work is scheduled to begin in late February; road work is scheduled to begin in March.

Segment 3 will improve safety and mobility by modernizing 5.5 miles of I-75 through the communities of Royal Oak, Hazel Park, and Madison Heights.
