I-696 ‘Restore the Reuther’ project closing the southbound M-10 ramp to eastbound I-696 for work in Oakland County
July 21, 2023
FARMINGTON HILLS, Mich. - The I-696 Restore the Reuther Rebuilding Michigan project is beginning reconstruction of the major freeway interchange ramps.
Beginning 9 a.m., Monday, July 24th through late August, the southbound M-10 ramp to eastbound I-696 will be closed for ramp reconstruction work.
- Southbound M-10 traffic traveling to eastbound I-696 will be detoured to 10 Mile Road and then travel east on 10 Mile Road to northbound M-10 to Lahser north to Coral Gable Street east to eastbound I-696.
This $275 million project includes rebuilding the roadway from the base up, including storm sewer replacement work, and rebuilding ramps at Orchard Lake Road, American Drive, Franklin Road, and US-24 (Telegraph Road).
During the 2023 construction season, eastbound I-696 is being rebuilt from I-275 to east of US-24 (Telegraph Road). Westbound lanes will be rebuilt in 2024. Project details can be found at DrivingOakland.com.
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 improve the condition of the state's infrastructure.
Based on economic modeling, this investment is expected to directly and indirectly support 3,500 jobs.
