The third weekend closure of eastbound I-696 from US-24 to I-75 will begin this Friday, August 10. 

Beginning Friday at 8 p.m., eastbound I-696 will be closed from Telegraph to I-75 through Monday at 5 a.m. Ramp and lane closures will start west of M-10 to redirect eastbound traffic to the detour route. 

Detour traffic should move from southbound M-10 to eastbound Davison Freeway, then northbound I-75 to eastbound I-696. 

There will be overnight lane closures on westbound I-696 from US-24 (Telegraph Road) to I-275 with one lane open at all times.

MDOT only issued this reminder: 

Eastbound I-696 has only two lanes open from I-75 to Dequindre Road and the ramp to Dequindre Road closed until mid-August for concrete removal and replacement. This will allow the ramp to be completed and reopened after eastbound traffic is shifted across the median to the new pavement.

The road work is expected to be complete by November 2018.
