(WXYZ) — MDOT said the traffic shift for segment 2 of the I-75 Modernization project is complete and now all traffic is on one side of the highway.

Over the weekend, both directions of the highway were closed to complete the traffic shift, and now all traffic is on the northbound side of the freeway between 13 Mile and Coolidge Highway. This is the portion that was reconstructed last year.

Each direction has two lanes open with a temporary concrete barrier separating the two. It will allow for southbound reconstruction to happen this year.

Temporary crossovers allow southbound I-75 traffic to exit at Big Beaver, Rochester, and 14 Mile roads and enter southbound I-75 from eastbound Big Beaver Road. All other entrance and exit ramps to southbound I-75 are closed from Crooks Road/Corporate Drive to 14 Mile Road for the remainder of the 2020 construction season. These temporary crossovers will be closed for a limited time during the construction season when crews are working within the vicinity.

On the northbound side of the freeway, access to and from northbound I-75 at 14 Mile Road, Rochester Road, Big Beaver Road, and Crooks Road/Corporate Drive is maintained.
