Bridge demolition requires closing a portion of I-94 in Detroit this weekend
April 05, 2022
Westbound I-94 traffic will be detoured via southbound I-75 and westbound I-96 back to westbound I-94. Eastbound I-94 traffic will be detoured via eastbound I-96 to northbound I-75 back to eastbound I-94. All entrance ramps to eastbound I-94 from 30th Street to M-10 (Lodge Freeway), and westbound I-94 from Mt. Elliott to Linwood streets, will be closed by 9 p.m. Friday and will reopen by 5 a.m. Monday.
Starting at 5 a.m. Monday, the following closures will remain in place until late May:
- The right lane of westbound I-94 from Linwood Street to I-96, and
- The westbound I-94 ramp to eastbound and westbound I-96.
Ramp traffic will be detoured using southbound I-75 to I-96. Detours will be posted for local traffic using Grand River Avenue over I-94.
The new overpass will replace the original structure built in 1952. All work on this $14.6 million investment is scheduled to be completed in early 2023.
