US-24 (Telegraph Road) project near Eureka Road begins with the closure of the I-75/US-24 connector

TAYLOR, Mich. ­- The Michigan Department of Transportation is investing $18.5 million to replace two bridges and improve four bridges on US-24 (Telegraph Road) from the US-24/I-75 connector to Mercier Avenue, north of Eureka Road, along with repairs to the US-24 connector between I-75 and Eureka Road.

Beginning in mid-March, the northbound I-75 connector between I-75 and US-24 (Telegraph Road) will be closed for bridge and road repairs through late fall. Traffic will be detoured via northbound I-75, past the connector, to northbound M-39 (Southfield Road), then westbound I-94 to northbound US-24.

In early April, northbound US-24 (Telegraph Road) will be reduced to one lane through late fall from Pennsylvania Road to north of Eureka Road for bridge replacement over the Frank and Poet Drain. There will not be a designated detour but drivers may want to avoid the area.

In 2025, work will occur on the southbound side of US-24 (Telegraph Road) near Eureka Road and the southbound I-75 connector to rebuild and repairs bridges.

Based on economic modeling, this investment is expected to directly and indirectly support nearly 263 jobs.
