(WXYZ) — The I-75 road and bridge repair project in Auburn Hills will see some changes next week.

Starting May 28 at 7 a.m., the Giddings Road bridge over I-75 will close, with traffic detoured to Taylor, Joslyn and Harmon roads. Crews will begin work on the media pier, according to MDOT.

Giddings Road is scheduled to reopen over I-75 during the evening hours on Monday, June 10.

Starting June 3 at 7 a.m., the eastbound and westbound M-24 bridges over I-75 will be closed. In addition, the northbound M-24/I-75 connector ramp will close. The bridge closures will require the southbound I-75 ramp to eastbound M-24, as well as the westbound connector ramp to southbound I-75, to close, MDOT says.

Ramp traffic will be detoured to the I-75/University Drive interchange to Opdyke Road, then back to M-24. The I-75/M-24 bridges and ramps are scheduled to reopen during the evening hours on Saturday, June 8.

The overall I-75 project includes repairing 21 bridges between South Boulevard and Baldwin Road in Auburn Hills. Included in the work is resurfacing both direction of I-75 between South Boulevard and Giddings Road. The road work includes repairing the ramps at the Chrysler Drive and M-24 (Lapeer Road) interchanges. All work on this $21 million investment is expected to be completed in November.
