I-75 closed from US-24 to Saginaw Road in Oakland County June 9-12 for Davisburg Road bridge demolition
CLARKSTON, Mich. – Beginning 9 p.m. Friday, June 9, contract crews will be closing I-75 in each direction from US-24 to Saginaw Road for the demolition of the Davisburg Road bridge over I-75. All traffic will be detoured onto Dixie Highway. Work is expected to be completed by 5 a.m. Monday, June 12. This work is part of the Michigan Department of Transportation’s $160 million investment to resurface and repair I-75 from M-15 (Ortonville Road) to the Oakland/Genesee county line. This project includes resurfacing I-75, repairing 11 bridges, drainage improvements, culvert replacements, signs, and guardrail. Various work will be performed in different locations with different schedules throughout the 15 miles over four years.
In 2024, work will include milling and resurfacing northbound I-75 from M-15 to the county line. There will be two lanes of northbound and southbound traffic sharing the existing southbound roadway.
In 2025, milling and resurfacing will occur on southbound I-75 from the county line to M-15. Traffic will share the existing northbound roadway.
In 2026, work will include removing the temporary crossovers and remaining miscellaneous activity.
Funding for this project is made possible by Gov. Gretchen Whitmer’s Rebuilding Michigan program to rebuild the state highways and bridges that are critical to the state’s economy and carry the most traffic. The investment strategy is aimed at fixes that result in longer useful lives and improve the condition of the state’s infrastructure.
Based on economic modeling, this investment is expected to directly and indirectly support 1,936 jobs.
