Heads-up if you commute on I-275 in Wayne County.
The massive I-275 reconstruction project is moving into the phase of repairing bridges and ramps connecting I-275 with I-94, M-153 (Ford Road) and US-12 (Michigan Avenue).
MDOT says this requires closing ramps to allow the bridge, ramp, and freeway work to occur in these locations.
Beginning 6 a.m., Monday, April 24, eastbound M-153 (Ford Road) ramp to northbound I-275 will close through late July. The detour will be eastbound M-153 (Ford Road) to southbound I-275, then to US-12 (Michigan Avenue) to northbound I-275.
The I-275 and I-94 interchange will have major ramp closures for approximately two months as part of the project.
MDOT says these simultaneous ramp closures are necessary to complete the work by early summer before nearby Metro Airport begins work on its roadways.
MDOT and Metro Airport said they are working together to ensure access to the airport is maintained.
Beginning 7 a.m., Monday, May 1, northbound I-275 ramps to eastbound and westbound I-94 will close through early July.
Detour: Northbound I-275 traffic will continue north to Ecorse Road, then head westbound on Ecorse Road to southbound I-275, then southbound I-275 to eastbound or westbound I-94.
Beginning 7 a.m., Monday, May 1, eastbound I-94 ramp to northbound I-275 will close through early July.
Beginning 7 a.m., Monday, May 8, westbound I-94 ramp to northbound I-275 will close through early July.
Detour: Eastbound and westbound I-94 traffic will use southbound I-275 to eastbound Eureka Road, then to northbound I-275.
