I-94 Modernization Project - Detroit

The I-94 Modernization Project will reconstruct the I-94 freeway in Detroit from east of the I-96/I-94 interchange to east of Conner Avenue. The project will address known crash/safety and capacity issues by:

  • Adding a fourth travel lane in each direction.
  • Rebuilding 70+ bridges.
  • Rebuilding two major interchanges: the Lodge and Chrysler freeways.
  • Widening the median shoulder to better accommodate disabled vehicles and emergency responders.
  • Lengthening freeway entrance/exit ramps to improve safety, capacity and travel time reliability.
  • Converting many of the existing service drives above the freeway into two-way local street connections that improve community connectivity and accommodate non-motorized users.
  • Fitting within the existing right-of-way footprint through the use of proposed retaining walls in lieu of existing grassy cut slopes that are challenging to maintain.

The cost of this project is over $3 billion.
