July 9, 2020 — Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT) contract crews will be demolishing the Bernhard Avenue pedestrian bridge over I-75, and performing road work this weekend. This will require closing northbound and southbound I-75 between M-102 (Eight Mile Road) and the I-75 Business Loop (Square Lake Road) beginning at 11 p.m. Friday, July 10. Both directions of I-75 are expected to reopen by 5 a.m. Monday, July 13.

 

During this closure, northbound I-75 traffic will be detoured via westbound M-102 (Eight Mile Road), northbound M-1 (Woodward Avenue), and eastbound Square Lake Road back to northbound I-75. All northbound entrance ramps to I-75 from M-8 (Davison Freeway) to Adams Road will be closed beginning at 9 p.m. Friday and will reopen by 5 a.m. Monday.

 

Southbound I-75 traffic will be detoured via westbound Square Lake Road, southbound M-1, and eastbound M-102 back to southbound I-75. All entrance ramps to southbound I-75 from M-59 to Nine Mile Road will be closed starting at 9 p.m. Friday and will reopen by 5 a.m. Monday.

 

I-75 ramps that are already closed due to the current construction configuration will remain closed after the freeway opens.
