(WXYZ) — Eastbound I-94 will be closed in Macomb and Wayne counties this weekend so crews can work on replacing the E. Grand Blvd. overpass.

According to MDOT, the highway will close from 9 p.m. Friday between I-75 and I-696. Lanes are expected to reopen by 5 a.m. Monday.

Crews have to set new bridge beams and continue ongoing road resurfacing on I-94.

Eastbound I-94 traffic will be detoured via southbound I-75, the eastbound Gratiot Connector, northbound M-3 (Gratiot Avenue), and eastbound I-696 back to eastbound I-94. All entrance ramps to eastbound I-94 will be closed starting at 7 p.m. from Grand River Avenue to 11 Mile Road and will reopen by 5 a.m. Monday.

Westbound I-94 will also have only one lane open between I-75 and M-10 for work on the Second Ave. bridge. The I-75 ramps to westbound I-94 will be closed through the weekend.
