(WXYZ) — I-94 will close between I-75 and M-10 in Detroit this weekend due to the demolition of the Brush Street overpass.

The closure will begin at 9 p.m. Friday, April 12. All lanes of I-94 are expected to reopen by 5 a.m. Monday, April 15.

During this closure, WB I-94 traffic will use SB I-75 and westbound I-96 to go back to WB I-94. The northbound and southbound ramps to westbound I-94 will remain open.

All entrance ramps to WB I-94 will be closed from Mt. Eliot to John R. Street and will reopen by 5 a.m. Monday.

Eastbound I-94 traffic will use EB I-96 and NB I-75 to go back to EB I-94. The EB I-94 ramps to northbound and southbound M-10 will remain open for local traffic. All entrance ramps to EB I-94 will be closed from 30th Street to M-10 and will reopen by 5 a.m. Monday.

On Friday night, the NB and SB I-75 ramps to WB I-94 will be closed for the duration of the bridge replacement. They are expected to reopen in November.

The bridge replacement is part of the I-94 modernization project in Detroit that involved rebuilding 7 miles of freeway and replacing 67 bridges between Conner Road and I-96. For more information, click here.
