Traffic Shift, Ramp Closures Coming To I-75 Tonight

June 01, 2018 - 8:01 am

TAYLOR (WWJ) - The massive reconstruction project along I-75 Downriver is moving right along. 

The next step is to perform pavement repairs on northbound I-75 from Northline Road to Schaefer Road. This work requires shifting northbound I-75 traffic across the median onto the closed southbound I-75 lanes.

Beginning at 9 p.m. Friday, June 1, northbound traffic will be shifted onto the southbound lanes and will remain on that side until the first exit at Livernois Road in southwest Detroit.

Due to the traffic shift, ramp access is unavailable. The last entrance ramp to northbound I-75 will be Sibley Road with the next entrance ramp at Livernois Road. The last exit ramp from northbound I-75 is Northline Road with the next exit ramp at Livernois Road.

The traffic shift will be in place for approximately two weeks, until June 15, while areas of northbound concrete are removed and the replacement concrete cures.

Southbound I-75 remains closed from Springwells Street to US-24 through November.
