OAKLAND COUNTY, Mich. (WXYZ) — The start of segment 2 of the I-75 modernization project has been delayed to next week due to recent winter weather, MDOT says.

It was originally scheduled to begin on Feb. 28, but crews are now scheduled to begin construction after Monday, March 4.

Next week's construction will focus on the southbound lanes from Adams Road to south of 13 Mile Road as crews begin preparations for a traffic shift.

The $224 million project will involve rebuilding approximately 18 miles of pavement.
