I-75 project update from M-15 (Ortonville Road) to the Oakland/Genesee county line
November 27, 2023
VILLAGE OF CLARKSTON, Mich. - Bridge and road work continues along the I-75 project between M-15 (Ortonville Road) and the Oakland/Genesee county line, with an expected completion of work by mid-December.
Below is a list of current closures for repairs:
• Southbound I-75 has the right lane closed from Grange Hall Road to East Holly Road, with the two right lanes closed daily 6 a.m. - 2 p.m.
• Closure lengths have been significantly reduced in each direction of I-75.
• Southbound I-75 will have the right lane closed from US-24 (Dixie Highway) to Holcomb Road on Nov. 30 for culvert repair work.
In 2024, work will include milling and resurfacing northbound I-75 from M-15 to the county line. There will be two lanes of northbound and southbound traffic sharing the existing southbound side of the freeway.
In 2025, milling and resurfacing will occur on southbound I-75 from the county line to M-15. Traffic will share the northbound side of the freeway.
In 2026, work will include removing temporary crossovers, as well as remaining miscellaneous activity.
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.
The Michigan Department of Transportation is investing approximately $160 million to resurface and repair I-75 from M-15 (Ortonville Road) to the Oakland/Genesee county line. This project includes resurfacing I-75, repairing 11 bridges, drainage improvements, culvert replacements, signs, and guardrail. Various work will be performed in different locations with different schedules throughout the 15 miles over four years.
Based on economic modeling, this investment is expected to directly and indirectly support 1,936 jobs.
