CLOSURE DETAILS:

A detailed inspection is required of the M-85 (Fort Street) bridge, which recently had an issue that kept it in the upright position for a couple of days. This intensive inspection requires the bridge to be closed over the Rouge River for approximately three days.

During this inspection, M-85 (Fort Street) will be closed between Oakwood Boulevard and Miller Road. Currently, M-85 is closed between Miller Road and Woodmere Road for a road upheaval situation on Dearborn Street at M-85, which is being addressed by the City of Detroit and utility companies.

Miller Road is available for local access/local traffic only between Dix Avenue and Fort Street.

Drivers are encouraged to plan an alternate route before approaching this area.
