Drivers should expect occasional lane closures on I-94 between I-275 and Huron Street in Ypsilanti through fall.

The work includes pavement repairs on the freeway and ramps, joint repairs and resealing, drainage clean-out, diamond grinding, and replacing the truck weigh scale at the Belleville Rest Area.
The work will being Thursday, June 18 at 8 p.m.
Eastbound and westbound I-94 will remain open with lane closures varying during days, nights and weekends.
All lanes will remain open during morning and afternoon drive times.
Single-lane closures may occur on weekdays from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.
Up to two lanes may be closed during weeknight work from 8 p.m. to 5 a.m.
Weekend work will occur from 8 p.m. Friday through 5 a.m. Monday, with one lane open.
