The Michigan Department of Transportation will host a public meeting March 21 on a planned I-94 road project that will affect motorists who commute through the Romulus and Taylor portions of the freeway.
According to MDOT, the $12 million project will perform bridge work on piers, railings, and decks (driving surface) along with some road resurfacing and joint and crack resealing on I-94 between I-275 and US-24 (Telegraph Road).
There will also be ramp repairs at Merriman Road and Middle Belt roads.
Work is expected to begin in late June and be completed by late fall.
There will be two lanes open in each direction during most of the construction, according to MDOT.

Airport access will be maintained during the project, although MDOT recommends that drivers use the airport’s south entrance on Eureka Road, east of I-275.
During the public meeting, there will be exhibits displaying project locations, types of work, and lane closures.
Attendees will have the opportunity to meet the design and construction team and learn details about the project.
The meeting will be held Thursday, March 21 from 4 to 6 p.m. inside the city council room at Romulus City Hall, 11111 Wayne Road.
This will be one of six different projects on I-94 in Wayne County this construction season.
MDOT says it will work to coordinate the various projects and closures as much as possible to minimize the inconvenience to drivers while also maintaining safe work zones to ensure that everyone goes home every night.
