M-39 service drives
US-12 (Michigan Avenue)
SERVICE DRIVE CLOSURE:
Monday, June 1, 2020
SERVICE DRIVE REOPEN:
Sunday, June 21, 2020
PROJECT COMPLETION DATE:
Beginning Monday at 9 a.m., the northbound M-39 service drive will be closed from Village Road, north of Rotunda Drive, to US-12 (Michigan Avenue). Also closed will be the northbound M-39 ramps to eastbound and westbound US-12, along with the US-12 ramps to the northbound service drive. Access from Village Road to the northbound service drive will also be closed.
This work is part a $12.6 million investment by the Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT) to repair or replace six bridges near the M-39/US-12 interchange in Dearborn in three locations:
- The bridges over the Rouge River, south of US-12. The northbound service drive is being closed in order to rebuild the northbound bridge over the Rouge River. The southbound bridge has already been repaired.
- The railroad bridges over northbound and southbound M-39, south of US-12, are currently being replaced.
- The eastbound and westbound US-12 bridges over M-39 are being replaced. Currently, the eastbound US-12 bridge is being worked on and is expected to be completed by mid- to late June and then work will begin on the westbound bridge.
The repair and replacement of these bridges will ensure safer routes for drivers through this very busy interchange that accommodates approximately 100,000 drivers daily.
This road construction project is an essential function. Transportation workers in the field follow Centers for Disease Control guidelines to limit their risk of getting sick.
