DETROIT — As earlier announced by the Michigan Department of Transportation, M-1 RAIL will be closing a section of I-94 in Detroit this weekend between I-75 and M-10 (Lodge Freeway).
The closure will begin at 9 p.m. Friday with all lanes of the freeway expected to reopen by 5 a.m. Monday. The closure will mark the halfway point of the I-94 bridge rebuild, enabling crews to restore vehicular traffic to the southbound lanes and to shift construction work to the northbound lanes of the Woodward Avenue overpass bridge.
During the closure, westbound I-94 motorists will be directed to southbound I-75 (Chrysler Freeway), then southbound I-75 (Fisher Freeway) to northbound M-10, and back onto westbound I-94. Eastbound I-94 motorists will be directed to southbound M-10, then southbound M-10 to northbound I-75, and back onto eastbound I-94.
