US-12 project: Various ramps opening and closing at US-12/M-39 interchange in Dearborn beginning June 14

DEARBORN, Mich. ­- Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT) contract crews will be reopening some ramps at the M-39 (Southfield Freeway)/US-12 (Michigan Avenue) interchange and closing others as work progresses through the interchange as part of the US-12 project.

Beginning Wednesday evening, June 14, the northbound M-39 (Southfield Freeway) ramp to westbound US-12 (Michigan Avenue) and the westbound US-12 ramp to northbound M-39 will reopen. Once open, the following will close through the end of July:

  • Eastbound US-12 ramp to northbound M-39
    • Detour: Eastbound US-12 traffic will continue east of M-39 to the crossover and then use the westbound US-12 ramp to northbound M-39.
  • Northbound M-39 ramp to eastbound US-12
    • Detour: Northbound M-39 traffic will continue to westbound M-153 (Ford Road) and then take southbound M-39 to eastbound US-12.

Two lanes remain open in each direction on US-12 (Michigan Avenue) between Oakwood Boulevard (Elm Street) and Greenfield Road.

The westbound US-12 (Michigan Avenue) service drive, west of Greenfield Road, will have one lane open through early fall.

MDOT is investing $17.9 million to mill and resurface US-12 (Michigan Avenue) between Oakwood Boulevard and Greenfield Road over a two-year period. The work includes curb/gutter, guardrail, and drainage improvements, along with traffic signal modernization, sidewalk upgrades, and sign upgrades.

Based on economic modeling, this investment is expected to directly and indirectly support 227 jobs.
