DEARBORN, Mich. (WXYZ) — Lane closures begin along M-39 Southfield Freeway and US-12 Michigan Avenue for what MDOT calls "major bridge work."

The $12.7 million project will repair six bridges near the M-39/Michigan Ave. interchange in Dearborn.

It's expected to start at 9 a.m. on Monday, March 2 with the project lasting through the fall.

Southfield Freeway closures

Beginning Monday at 9 a.m., northbound and southbound M-39 will be reduced to one lane under Michigan Ave. through the fall.

Then, on Tuesday at 9 a.m., the southbound M-39 service drive will close from Michigan Ave. to Rotunda for two weeks – then one lane will reopen through the fall.

Also on Tuesday, the northbound M-39 Service Drive will be reduced to one lane. At some point in April, the northbound M_39 service drive will close for about two weeks and then reopen to one lane.

Michigan Avenue closures

Beginning Monday at 9 a.m., eastbound and westbound Michigan Ave. over M-39 will have one lane closed in each direction to build crossovers in the median. In mid-March, bridge work will begin by reducing eastbound and westbound traffic from four lanes to two lanes and shifting this traffic onto one of the bridges while the other is repaired.
