SOUTHFIELD (WWJ) - The scheduled closure of eastbound I-696 from Telegraph Road (US-24) to I-75 in Oakland County over the weekend has been canceled due to a rainy forecast. 

It is unclear when or if the construction by the Michigan Department of Transportation will be rescheduled.

The closure was set to begin at 9 p.m Friday and end at 5 a.m. on Monday and include all entrance ramps. 

Reminder: Westbound I-696 remains closed in Macomb County from I-94 to Dequindre Road through the fall.

This weekend work is part of the larger "Restore the Reuther" project that launched at the end of April. The project is expected to be completed by November.
