Near Peak Fall Foliage Colors Along I-75 in Michigan and Ohio

Ready for a roadtrip? This weekend is a great time to plan an I-75 fall foliage tour! Right now Central and Southern Michigan as well as most of Ohio are in the midst of near peak fall foliage color along the I-75 corridor.

In Michigan you’ll find near peak color from the Ohio state line northward on I-75 thru Monroe, Detroit, Troy, Auburn Hills, to Flint. Just about the entire length of I-75 in Ohio is showing spectacular color. Begin your roadtrip in Dayton and travel northward thru Sidney, Lima, and Findlay to Toledo. Great colors and plenty of opportunities to take an exit and explore the more rural countryside.

What’s cool about viewing fall colors from the Interstate? The experience is totally different in either direction. Drive north on I-75, turn around and head south and you’ll see a whole new perspective right before your eyes! You can easily spend several days exploring small towns and villages directly off the Interstate exits along the way.

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.

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.

Ramp and Lane Closures, Detours for I-75 Construction in Detroit

The Michigan Department of Transportation is investing $3.6 million to make the following improvements at the I-75/M-10 interchange in Detroit. I-75 construction will require the following traffic impacts:

  • The northbound I-75 ramp to northbound M-10 will be closed starting this weekend to allow for reconstruction work. It is expected to reopen by fall.
  • The southbound I-75 ramp to southbound M-10 will be closed for repairs starting this weekend. It is expected to reopen in late May.
  • The northbound M-10 ramp to southbound I-75 will be closed this weekend only and then closed for repairs during the month of June.
  • M-85 (Fort Street) will have one lane open at a time over M-10 for repairs on other lanes. The size of this bridge will provide enough room for equipment while maintaining the open lane
  • The pedestrian bridge over M-10 near M-85 will be removed during the summer.

In addition to the I-75 construction closures listed above, M-10 will be closed this weekend between Jefferson Avenue and I-75, and reopened on at 5 a.m. on Monday, May 8.

DETOURS:

M-10 between I-75 and Jefferson Avenue

  • Northbound M-10 traffic will be detoured via Jefferson Avenue, northbound Rosa Parks Boulevard, northbound I-75, and westbound M-8 to northbound M-10.
  • Southbound M-10 traffic will be detoured to northbound I-75, then southbound I-375 to Jefferson Avenue.

  • Southbound I-75 traffic heading for southbound M-10 will be detoured to southbound I-375 to Jefferson Avenue.

SAFETY DETAILS:

Closing these lanes and ramps for I-75 construction will provide workers with safe, protected work zones and provide motorists with the safest route possible through the area.
