April 23, 2019 -- Early May is the target date for the Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT) to start a bridge and road repair project in northern Oakland County. The project includes repairing 21 bridges between South Boulevard and Baldwin Road in Auburn Hills. Included in the work is resurfacing both direction of I-75 between South Boulevard and Giddings Road. All work on this $21 million investment is expected to be completed in November.   

During active construction, two lanes of I-75 will be open in each direction via traffic shifts. Both directions of the freeway may be reduced to a single lane on weeknights and all times on weekends. The road work includes repairing the ramps at the Chrysler Drive and M-24 (Lapeer Road) interchanges.    

I-75 ramps and lanes on local roads will be closed at various times to accommodate the bridge work. Giddings Road and Featherstone Drive will be closed over I-75 for approximately 30 days with scheduled dates to be determined.
