March 20, 2008 -- The Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT) today announced that it is making information about I-75 road and bridge construction scheduled for Oakland and Wayne counties available on the Web. "I-75 Corridor Improvements" contains detailed information on five projects along the interstate from South Rockwood to Clarkston.
During 2008 and 2009, MDOT will be investing approximately $288 million on I-75 to improve more than 22 miles of pavement and rehabilitate more than 90 bridges. The informational campaign is designed to assist commuters who travel the freeway daily, and for those who will be driving into Metro Detroit for one of the area's signature summer events.
"We design these informational campaigns to inform the public so they can make educated decisions before getting behind the wheel," said Metro Region Engineer Greg Johnson. "We want to assure everyone that, even though major improvements are slated up and down the corridor, Metro Detroit is open for business and that viable alternate routes are in place to help motorists avoid delays and closures."
The five projects on I-75 include:
- Reconstruction of I-75 between South Huron River Drive and Gibraltar Road in Wayne County
- Reconstruction of I-75 between Clark Street and Rosa Parks Boulevard in Detroit
- Bridge repairs on I-75 between I-375 and M-8 (Davison Freeway) in Detroit
- Bridge repairs on I-75 between M-102 (Eight Mile Road) and I-696 in Oakland County
- Bridge repairs on I-75 between Maple Road and M-15 in Oakland County
The "I-75 Corridor Improvements" can be found on the MDOT Web site at www.michigan.gov/mdot
under the "Projects and Programs" link.
