(WXYZ) — Both directions of I-75 will be closed between I-94 and Davison Freeway in Detroit this weekend.

MDOT crews will be replacing the Milwaukee Street overpass.

The first state involves removing the existing structure that was originally constructed in 1969.

The freeway will close beginning 9 p.m. Friday, May 29 and will reopen by 5 a.m. Monday, June 1.

During the closure, the posted detour for northbound I-75 follows westbound I-94, northbound M-10 (Lodge Freeway), and eastbound M-8 back to northbound I-75. Southbound I-75 traffic will use westbound M-8 to southbound M-10, back to southbound I-75.

The following ramps will close starting at 7 p.m. on Friday:

- Eastbound and westbound M-8 to southbound I-75,

- Holbrook Avenue to southbound I-75,

- Clay Street to southbound I-75,

- Eastbound and westbound I-94 to northbound I-75, and

- Warren Avenue to northbound I-75.

All ramps, except for Holbrook Avenue to southbound I-75, will reopen by 5 a.m. Monday, June 1.
