CAV corridor pilot update: Westbound I-94 outside lane closed in Wayne County starting Jan. 15
January 11, 2024
- Crews have been working to install digital infrastructure for the connected and automated vehicles (CAV) corridor pilot on westbound I-94 from Belleville to Rawsonville roads in Wayne County.
- Beginning Jan. 15, crews will close the outside lane of the project limits to continue work along the shoulder.
- Testing in the outside lane is expected to begin in the spring and will be conducted during off-peak hours. Outside of testing periods, the left lane will be open to all vehicles.
BELLEVILLE, Mich. - Starting Jan. 15, crews expect to close the outside lane of westbound I-94 from Belleville to Rawsonville roads in Wayne County. Work to equip the left lane of westbound I-94 with digital infrastructure to support the connected and automated vehicles (CAV) corridor pilot started in August and is expected to be completed in May once crews install a high-friction surface treatment along the outside lane.
When this work is complete, the CAV corridor pilot will be fully operational, and Cavnue, the private company developing this project in partnership with MDOT, will begin testing CAVs along the corridor. During testing, advanced signs will notify drivers that the left lane of westbound I-94 from Belleville to Rawsonville roads is closed to traffic. Testing will only be conducted during off-peak hours.
Outside the testing phases, the left lane will be available to all road users. Drivers who choose to use this lane will not be able to access the Belleville Rest Area or exit at Belleville Road due to the placement of the delineator posts that separate the technology-enabled express lane from the general-purpose lanes on I-94. More information about the I-94 CAV Corridor pilot is available on MDOT’s website.
