DETROIT (WXYZ) — On Friday, April 12 at 9 p.m., the north and southbound I-75 ramps to westbound I-94 will close in conjunction with the Brush Street overpass replacement, according to MDOT.

The ramps are expected to reopen in November.

Southbound I-75 traffic should continue south on I-75 and westbound I-96 back to westbound I-94.

MDOT advises these detours:

For northbound I-75 traffic heading north into Detroit, drivers are advised to use exit 48 to access westbound I-96. For motorists using northbound I-375, follow southbound I-75 to westbound I-96. Drivers entering I-75 from Mack or Warren avenues are directed to head south on I-75 to westbound I-96. Once on westbound I-96, all motorists will be able to connect with westbound I-94.

When getting around metro Detroit this weekend, keep these fast facts in mind:

  • Northbound and southbound I-75 ramps to westbound I-94 will close Friday night until November.
  • The posted detour is southbound I-75 and westbound I-96 to access westbound I-94.
  • The ramp closures are needed due to the replacement of the Brush Street overpass.
