Removal of Third Street overpass requires closing a portion of I-94 this weekend in Detroit
November 10, 2021
During this closure, westbound I-94 traffic will be detoured via southbound I-75 and westbound I-96 back to westbound I-94. All entrance ramps to westbound I-94 will be closed beginning at 7 p.m. Friday from Mt. Elliott to M-10 (Lodge Freeway).
Eastbound I-94 traffic will be detoured via eastbound I-96 and northbound I-75 back to eastbound I-94. All entrance ramps to eastbound I-94 will be closed starting at 7 p.m. Friday from 30th Street to M-10. All entrance ramps will reopen by 5 a.m. Monday.
The Third Street overpass is being removed to accommodate the future I-94/M-10 (Lodge Freeway) interchange improvements as part of the I-94 modernization project. Due to the overpass's proximity to the interchange, and the subsequent replacement of existing left-lane exit and entrance ramps with standard right-lane movements, there is not sufficient room to replace Third Street over I-94.
