(WXYZ) — The southbound I-75 exit ramps to Big Beaver Rd. and Rochester Rd. will be closed starting this weekend for reconstruction.
According to MDOT, the ramps will be closed starting at 5 a.m. May 9 and the closure will continue until mid-June.
The temporary Rochester Rd. exit is being closed for reconstruction and recycling operations. The existing southbound freeway pavement is being removed and crushed for use as the new sub-base. The Rochester Road exit ramp is scheduled to be closed until mid-August. During the ramp closure, traffic will be detoured to 14 Mile Road.
Right now, both directions of I-75 have two lanes open with all traffic using the northbound side of the freeway, separated by a temporary concrete barrier between Adams and 13 Mile roads. Drivers can still exit southbound I-75 at Square Lake, Adams and 14 Mile roads.
