MAJOR I-275 CLOSURE PLANNED FOR THIS WEEKEND
MDOT will close northbound I-275 from Friday (4/22) in the evening to Monday (4/25) by 5 a.m.
The limits of the closure are I-94 to approximately 5 Mile. All entrance ramps to NB I-275, from I-94, Ecorse, US-12, M-153, Ann Arbor Road, and EB M-14 will be closed. We will maintain the westbound I-96 to northbound I-275 ramp. The detour for the closure will be NB I-275 to EB I-94 to NB M-39 to WB I-96.
The freeway closure is needed due to numerous potholes and pavement failures. The pavement on NB I-275 is deteriorating quicker than anticipated and repairs must be done. MDOT plans to have several crews go “all in” and repair potholes over the weekend. Due to limited width (because of the temporary concrete barrier wall and narrow shoulder), there’s simply not enough room to maintain traffic and safely maintain traffic.
Southbound I-275 (and associated ramps) will remain open.
