(WXYZ) — I-75 will be closing again this weekend in both directions between 8 Mile and Square Lake Rd.

The highway will close starting at 11 p.m. on Friday and is expected to reopen by 5 a.m. on Monday.

MDOT contract crews will be setting bridge beams on the Woodward Heights Blvd. and the Harry Ave. pedestrian bridge over I-75 and performing road work.

During the closure, northbound I-75 will be detoured to westbound 8 Mile to northbound Woodward to eastbound Square Lake and back to northbound I-75.

All northbound entrance ramps to I-75 from M-8 to Adams Road will be closed beginning at 9 p.m. Friday and will reopen by 5 a.m. Monday.

Southbound I-75 traffic will be detoured to westbound Square Lake Road, southbound Woodward, and eastbound 8 Mile back to southbound I-75. All entrance ramps to southbound I-75 from M-59 to Nine Mile Road will be closed starting at 9 p.m. Friday and will reopen by 5 a.m. Monday.

It's expected that the highway will have to be closed another weekend in May to set beams on John R. and Meyers Ave.
