I-75 lane closures at Otter Creek Road Dec. 9-12 for bridge patching in Monroe County

LANSING, Mich. - The Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT) will close two lanes in each direction on I-75 at Otter Creek Road for bridge patching and maintenance beginning Friday. 

MDOT is investing approximately $126 million 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.
