5 miles of I-94 in Detroit closed this weekend for construction

DETROIT (WXYZ) — Changes will begin this weekend on the $11.6 million I-94 construction project in Detroit.

MDOT crews will move into another phase on the project to replace the Brush Street overpass above I-94 in Detroit.

Currently, EB and WB I-94 traffic is shifted toward the median to maintain three lanes in each direction during peak travel times.

Beginning at 1 a.m and ending by 5 p.m. on Saturday, May 18, crews will close the left two lanes on EB and WB I-94 to shift traffic toward the right shoulder to begin construction of the median pier.

When the work is completed, three lanes will be maintained in each direction during peak travel times. All work is expected to be completed in November.

Starting at 5 p.m. Sunday, May 19, crews will close the eastbound I-94 ramp to northbound Lodge Freeway until Labor Day. Crews will replace the barrier wall on the ramp, along with structural and pavement repairs.

The westbound I-94 right lane under the Lodge Freeway ramp will close nightly starting at 9 p.m. and ending by 5 a.m. the following morning.

Ramp traffic will be detoured to northbound I-75 then westbound Davison Freeway back to northbound Lodge Freeway.
