(August 7, 2020 3:21 PM) The Michigan Department of Transportation has announced three ramp and highway closures as part of the I-94 Corridor Project.
The first, scheduled to start 9 AM on Saturday, August 8, will close the eastbound I-94 ramp to southbound US-127 to perform ramp and shoulder reconstruction. This work scheduled to be completed by 6 PM on Saturday, August 22.
Traffic will be detoured via southbound M-50 (West Avenue) to eastbound I-94 Business Loop (Michigan Avenue) and back to southbound US-127.
On Wednesday, August 12 at 7 AM, MDOT will close the westbound I-94 ramp to westbound M-60 to shift traffic to the newly constructed westbound M-60 ramp. MDOT expects the closure will last just one day, with reopening set for 9 PM on August 12.
Eastbound M-60 traffic heading for westbound I-94 will be detoured to eastbound I-94, then take the Airport Road exit and head back to westbound I-94. Westbound I-94 traffic heading for westbound M-60 will be detoured via southbound US-127, westbound I-94 Business Loop (Michigan Avenue), and M-50 (West Avenue) back to westbound M-60. Follow posted detours. Motorists are advised to seek alternate routes.
On Thursday, August 13, MDOT will close eastbound I-94 at M-60 for demolition of the current eastbound M-60 structure over I-94. Eastbound I-94 at M-60 will be closed until 8 AM on Sunday, August 16.
Eastbound I-94 traffic will be detoured via westbound M-60, Michigan Avenue, and eastbound M-60 back to eastbound I-94.
