Gaynier Road closed over I-75 in Monroe County Oct. 11-12 and Oct. 17-26 for bridge work
October 11, 2022
LANSING, Mich. - The Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT) is closing Gaynier Road over I-75 over two time periods to allow crews to safely pour the new bridge deck and rebuild the roadway to the bridge.
This work is part of a $126 million investment to rebuild more than 4 miles of I-75 between Erie Road and Otter Creek, including rebuilding five bridges along with the ramps at Otter Creek and Luna Pier Roads. The majority of work for this project is taking place in 2023-2024, with preparations taking place this year.
Funding for this project is made possible by Gov. Gretchen Whitmer's Rebuilding Michigan program to rebuild the state highways and bridges that are critical to the state's economy and carry the most traffic. The investment strategy is aimed at fixes that result in longer useful lives and improves the condition of the state's infrastructure.
Week one work dates:
8 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 11, 2022 -
6 a.m. Wednesday, Oct. 12, 2022
Week two work dates:
7 a.m. Monday, Oct. 17, 2022 -
5 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 26, 2022
Overall I-75 project completion date:
Traffic will be detoured via Luna Pier Road.
Motorists are advised to seek alternate routes.
Based on economic modeling, this investment is expected to directly and indirectly support 1,600 jobs.
These improvements will provide increased safety and mobility in this area of I-75, which is a significant local and national trade corridor.
