(WXYZ) — The Michigan Department of Transportation said preliminary work on the latest segment of the I-75 Modernization Project will begin this weekend, weather permitting.

Beginning at 5 a.m. on Saturday, Jan. 15, MDOT will close the northbound I-75 exit ramp to 11 Mile to begin building a retaining wall.

The work comes ahead of the full-scale rebuild that will begin later this winter.

This year, the modernization project will involve rebuilding northbound I-75 pavement, ramps, and bridges, from I-696 to 13 Mile Rd.

Beginning at 5 a.m. on Saturday, Jan. 15, MDOT will close the northbound I-75 exit ramp to 11 Mile to begin building a retaining wall. The detour for the ramp closure will be northbound I-75 to 14 Mile until mid-November.

This weekend, crews will also close the eastbound and westbound I-696 ramps to northbound I-75 to demolition bridge supports on the previous Dallas Ave. overpass.
