M-DOT is warning drivers that multiple freeways will be closed this weekend, as they rush to complete as much work as possible before the weather "worsens."

The closures will affect Northbound I-75 from Schaefer to Rosa Parks in Detroit, Eastbound I-696 from US-24 (Telegraph) to I-75, and the Express lanes on westbound I-96 from Davison to M-39 (Southfield Freeway).

The I-75 closure will run from 5:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. Saturday. The I-696 closure will run from 8:00 p.m. Friday to 5:00 a.m. Monday. The I-96 closure will run from 7:00 p.m. Thursday until Monday at 5:00 a.m.
