The Michigan Department of Transportation reports that the start on segment 2 of the I-75 modernization project in Oakland County had been delayed due to recent winter weather. Originally scheduled to begin on Thursday, February 28, crews are now scheduled to begin construction activities after Monday, March 4.
Initial construction impacts will focus on the southbound lanes from Adams Road to south of 13 Mile Road as crews begin preparations for a traffic shift.
This $224 million project will involve reconstructing more than 8 miles of pavement, improving 18 structures, upgrading drainage, constructing community-developed aesthetics and federally approved noise walls, and continuing construction of the high-occupancy vehicle (HOV) lanes between Coolidge Highway and 13 Mile Road.
The entire I-75 modernization project involves rebuilding approximately 18 miles of pavement, replacing bridges, adding an HOV lane in each direction, and bringing the freeway up to current design standards from north of M-102 (Eight Mile Road) to South Boulevard.
