April 16, 2021 -- Extensive bridge repair is scheduled to enter another phase this weekend as work continues on 12 structures over I-75 between M-8 (Davison Freeway) and 7 Mile Road in the city of Detroit. Starting Saturday morning, crews will close the two right lanes of southbound I-75 from M-102 (Eight Mile Road) to just south of M-8 (Davison Freeway). All work on this $13 million investment is expected to be completed in November.   

During active work, two lanes of I-75 will be open in each direction during peak travel times. The project includes repairing the structures at the I-75/M-8 interchange that will result in ramp closures throughout the season. The eastbound M-8 ramp to northbound I-75 will be closed for the duration of the project.
