MDOT closing Livernois Road under I-75 this weekend

for bridge demolition in Oakland County


Fast facts:

– Starting Friday morning, crews will be demolishing the southbound I-75 bridge over Livernois Road.

– Livernois Road will reopen to traffic by 5 a.m. Monday, March 30.


March 25, 2020 — Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT) contracting crews will be closing both directions of Livernois Road under I-75 for bridge demolition starting at 9 a.m. Friday, March 27. The closure is needed for demolishing the southbound I-75 bridge over Livernois Road. Currently, 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. This configuration will allow for the southbound lanes and bridges to be reconstructed this year. This weekend’s closure will not impact traffic on I-75.


The posted detour for northbound and southbound Livernois Road includes Big Beaver, Crooks and Maple roads. Both directions of Livernois Road will reopen by 5 a.m. Monday, March 30. Upon reopening, Livernois Road will have one lane open in each direction under I-75.
