I-75 ramp and lane closures in Monroe County beginning Friday

LANSING, Mich. - The Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT) will be closing two lanes on southbound I-75 from Otter Creek Road to Erie Road and both Luna Pier ramps to southbound I-75 Friday for concrete patching, drainage construction, and stage change setup in this work zone. 

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. Most work for this project will be performed 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.
