DETROIT, Mich. ­- Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT) contract crews have reopened both directions of I-94 in Detroit ahead of schedule. The I-94 freeway is open between I-96 and I-75 after crews completed the final round of hangar adjustments on the new Second Avenue bridge over the freeway. 

In addition, crews were able to reopen the westbound I-94 exit to I-96, as well as the eastbound and westbound I-96 ramps to eastbound I-94. Those ramps were closed due to ongoing work on the Grand River Avenue overpass.
