I-75 Construction Work Zone in Detroit Expanding

The Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT) has begun a $56.5 million project to remove and replace concrete pavement and sewers in southwest Detroit between Clark Avenue and Springwells Street. This project also will include the installation of intelligent transportation systems (ITS) and fiber optic upgrade between the I-75/I-96 interchange and West Road in Woodhaven. ITS will be used to gather and share road information: cameras, dynamic message signs (DMS), travel times, etc.

This project is in addition to the current I-75 Rouge River Detroit-Downriver Connection project and will be an extension of the current southbound work zone. By performing this work during the “I-75 Rouge” project between Springwells Street and Northline Road, it will modify current lane closures and traffic safety devices to save time, money, and future inconvenience to drivers and residents.

One southbound lane will remain open from Clark Avenue to Springwells Street where traffic must exit for the freeway closure. This work will continue through the winter and is expected to be completed next fall. This project will follow “I-75 Rouge” with southbound traffic detoured and northbound traffic remaining open and shifted onto new pavement through the next year.

 

TRAFFIC IMPACT:

To safely merge traffic into one lane, barrels will be placed north of the I-75/I-96 interchange and drivers will have one ramp lane to southbound I-75 and one ramp lane to westbound I-96 which has four lanes open. Drivers are strongly encouraged to use the westbound I-96 detour to avoid the I-75 work zones and closure.

Ambassador bridge traffic will continue the current configuration of cars exiting to westbound I-96 and trucks exiting onto one lane of southbound I-75 into the work zone.

Lane Closures, Traffic Shifts for I-75 Construction in Tampa Bay Area

The Florida Department of Transportation reports the following traffic impacts associated with I-75 construction in the Tampa Bay area this week.

  • Wesley Chapel/San Antonio – One lane may be closed in each direction of I-75 anywhere from north of County Road 54 (Exit 279) to north of SR 52 (Exit 285) between 9:00 p.m. and 6:00 a.m. Friday night, August 4 and Sunday through Friday (August 6 – 11) nights.
  • San Antonio – There may be lane closures on State Road 52 between Old Pasco Road and McKendree Road between 9:00 p.m. and 6:00 a.m. Friday night, August 4 and Sunday through Friday (August 6 – 11) nights. Watch for flaggers directing traffic.
  • Brooksville – One lane may be closed in each direction of I-75 from south of SR 50 (Exit 301) to the Hernando/Sumter counties line between 9:00 p.m. and 6:00 a.m. Sunday through Thursday (August 6 – 10) nights.
  • Brooksville – One lane of SR 50 (Cortez Boulevard) may be closed from I-75 up to a half mile in each direction between 6:30 p.m. and 6:00 a.m. Sunday through Thursday (August 6 – 10) nights and from 9:00 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Monday through Friday (August 7 – 11).
    During some of the night closures, drivers can expect traffic shifts and delays between 7:00 p.m. and 6:00 a.m. on SR 50 in the I-75 interchange area as traffic may be reduced to one lane in each direction and both directions of traffic placed on the westbound lanes. This will result in two-way traffic on what normally is a two-lane westbound section of roadway.
    In addition, all traffic entering and exiting I-75 may be limited to right turns only. This will mean drivers who normally would be making a left turn movement onto or off the ramps may have to go the opposite direction and make a U-Turn on SR 50 to go in their desired direction. Traffic congestion and delays are expected during the traffic shifts on SR 50 and on the I-75 exit ramps whenever traffic is in this temporary overnight alignment.
  • Brooksville – One lane may be closed with flaggers directing traffic on Croom Rital Road under I-75 from 7:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Monday through Friday (August 7 – 11).

Michigan DOT Suspends Works Zone Restrictions Over 4th of July Weekend

The Michigan Department of Transportation reports that it will suspend work zone restrictions on nearly 75 percent of its road and bridge projects over the Fourth of July weekend to ease congestion and increase safety.

Although some equipment and traffic configurations will remain over the weekend, suspending construction operations improves safety for workers and motorists.

More Americans will travel for this 4th of July holiday than ever before, according to projections from AAA. That goes for Michigan, too. The auto club expects more than 1.48 million Michiganders to travel at least 50 miles from home for the Independence Day weekend, a 3.3 percent increase from last year’s holiday travel period. The last time Michigan’s travel volume for Independence Day weekend was higher was 15 years ago.

Beginning at 3 p.m. Friday, June 30, and continuing until 6 a.m. Wednesday, July 5, 94 out of 129 projects statewide will have lane restrictions removed. While motorists will see suspended operations in most MDOT construction zones for the weekend, drivers are advised that equipment and certain traffic configurations, like temporary shifts or shoulder closures, may remain in place.

“Traveling to summer destinations in Michigan is always exciting. But driving is serious business and motorists need to focus at all times,” State Transportation Director Kirk T. Steudle said. “Many of our work zones will be removed for holiday travel, but driver attentiveness must remain. Please drive with care as we celebrate our country’s independence.”

The following is a list of work zones that will remain active or have restrictions during the Fourth of July weekend. If necessary, detour routes will be posted at the project location.

Northern Lower Peninsula

  • I-75, Ogemaw County, will have traffic shifts south of West Branch. The northbound I-75 West Branch Rest Area will be closed.

Central Michigan and Thumb

  • I-75/I-675 interchange, Saginaw County, has lane closures and traffic shifts at the north junction between Exit 154 and Exit 160. Three lanes will be open in the peak direction of travel with a moveable barrier wall.
