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 crews working on resurfacing northbound I-75 from M-15 to the north Oakland County line. To prepare for this traffic shift, there will be lane and ramp closures to install traffic control devices, pavement markings and the realignment of barrier walls.

  • Southbound I-75 will be reduced to two lanes from Baldwin Road (Genesse County) to M-15.

    Beginning 9 a.m. Friday, March 1, through 5 a.m. Monday, March 4:

  • Southbound I-75 will be reduced to one lane for weekend work from Baldwin Road (Genesse County) to M-15, along with intermittent ramp closures for pavement markings.

This work is weather dependent, and if necessary, will be rescheduled to the following weekend/s.

Beginning mid-March (depending on weather) through late fall:

  • Northbound and southbound I-75 will have two lanes open in each direction and traffic shifted between M-15 and Baldwin Road (Genesee County line) to share southbound I-75.
  • The following entrance ramps to northbound I-75 will be closed:
    • M-15
    • Dixie Highway
    • East Holly Road
    • Saginaw Road
  •  The northbound I-75 exit to Grange Hall Road (Exit 101) will be closed.

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.
