BACKGROUND:
MDOT staff and consultants will share project details on the upcoming replacement of the East Grand Boulevard and Mt. Elliot Street overpasses above I-94, and the Milwaukee Avenue bridge over I-75. This work, part of the I-94 modernization project in Detroit, is expected to begin in February and end in late fall.  

The I-94 modernization project will improve safety and mobility by modernizing roughly 7 miles of I-94 between Conner Avenue and I-96. Included in the modernization is utility and bridge replacement, improvements to freeway interchanges, and construction of an additional freeway lane. Additional project information is available at www.I94Detroit.org.
