(WXYZ) — Progress continues on segment 2 of the I-75 modernization project after crews shifted southbound traffic onto the newly reconstructed southbound lanes from Adams Road to 13 Mile Road Thursday.

Previously, two-way traffic was sharing the northbound side of the freeway while southbound lanes and bridges were being rebuilt, according to MDOT.

To accomplish this work, southbound I-75 had one lane closed which started at 7 p.m. Thursday evening.

By 5 a.m. Friday, Sept. 4, two lanes will reopen on southbound I-75 from Adams to 13 Mile roads. In addition, crews will reopen the eastbound Big Beaver Road ramp to southbound I-75. Northbound I-75 traffic will remain on two lanes from 13 Mile to Adams roads.

Both directions of I-75 will have two lanes open between 8 Mile and Adams roads over the Labor Day holiday weekend.

Fast facts:

  • Beginning at 7 p.m. Thursday, southbound I-75 will have one lane closed from Adams to 13 Mile roads for a traffic switch.
  • By 5 a.m. Friday, Sept. 4, southbound I-75 traffic will be using the newly constructed southbound lanes, with two lanes open.
  • The eastbound Big Beaver Road ramp to southbound I-75 will reopen.
