Southbound M-39 to be closed from M-102 (8 Mile Road) to US-12 (Michigan Avenue) this weekend in Wayne County

DETROIT, Mich. - A variety of work needs to be performed on M-39 (Southfield Freeway), which requires closing all southbound lanes this weekend. Crews will be collecting a large number of soil/pavement borings required for a future M-39 rebuilding project in this area in 2025-2026, while maintenance crews will be cleaning and repairing drainage structures.  

Beginning 10 p.m. Friday, June 24, through 5 a.m. Monday, June 27, southbound M-39 will be closed from M-102 (8 Mile Road) to US-12 (Michigan Avenue), along with all on and off ramps.

Traffic will be detoured via westbound M-102 (8 Mile Road) to southbound US-24 (Telegraph Road), then eastbound US-12 (Michigan Avenue) back to M-39.

The closure will allow crews to work safely versus closing multiple lanes in different locations over many weeks. 

For the most up to date lane closure information on this and all other MDOT projects on state roads (I, M and US routes), as well as 24/7 information about traffic incidents, drivers should always check Mi Drive at
