Update: Reckless driver forces crews to make repairs again to westbound I-94 west of I-275 on Thursday in Wayne County

BELLEVILLE, Mich. ­- Weather delays are pushing back the Michigan Department of Transportation's (MDOT) planned pavement repairs to Thursday on westbound I-94 between Haggerty and Belleville roads in Wayne County.

Last Saturday, crews previously closed the two right lanes for concrete repairs and then kept the right lane closed for concrete curing. Unfortunately, a reckless driver chose to avoid the traffic backups and drove on the shoulder and then into the fresh concrete, damaging the roadway. 

Beginning 9 a.m. Thursday, April 18, crews will close the two right lanes of westbound I-94 from Haggerty to Belleville roads to perform concrete pavement repairs. Work in the two right lanes is expected to be finished by 5 p.m. Friday, April 19. Then the right lane will remain closed for concrete curing for approximately a week.

During work, access to the Belleville Rest Area will be open, as will the Belleville Road exit and entrance ramps.
