The Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT) will reopen the northbound US-127 ramp to M-20, while closing the northbound US-127 ramp to US-127 Business Route (BR), to accommodate deck replacement. This ramp closure is expected to be in place through August.

Overnight closures for demolishing the US-127 BR bridge over US-127 are expected June 18 and 19. This work is part of a $15.6 million investment to resurface 6 miles of US-127 from US-127 BR to M-20, and US-127 BR from US-127 to Bluegrass Road, plus work to make improvements to US-127 bridges.

TRAFFIC RESTRICTIONS:                     
The northbound US-127 ramp to US-127 BR will be closed and detoured through Aug. 15. Drivers should use the northbound US-127 ramp to M-20.

Southbound US-127 will be closed at M-20 from 9 p.m. to 5 a.m. to accommodate overnight demolition of the US-127 BR ramp. Southbound US-127 traffic will be detoured via US-127 BR (Exit 144) to southbound US-127 at the south end of the US-127/US-127 BR junction.

This work will create a smoother driving surface and extend the life of the roadway.
