Project Introduction

Rendering of a divergent diamond interchange

The diverging diamond interchange (DDI) design will modernize the Big Beaver and 14 Mile Road interchanges and improve both vehicle and pedestrian safety.

Accelerated project construction will get Michigan moving smarter, safer, sooner.

Sustainable transportation across the state is vital to Michigan’s quality of life and economy.

Connecting families, business and regions across the state.

Intelligent Transportation System (ITS) technology will monitor real-time traffic conditions along the I-75 corridor.

A new tunnel will collect stormwater drainage from the corridor to support safe travel.

    Attention residents of the City of Troy and motorists who use the Big Beaver or 14 Mile Road Interchanges:

    As part of the I-75 Modernization Project, the interchanges at Big Beaver and 14 Mile Roads are being reconstructed into Diverging Diamond Interchanges (DDI’s). The Big Beaver interchange is anticipated to open late December 2020, while 14 Mile Road Interchange is anticipated to open in Spring of 2021.

    DDI’s are a safer option for both motorists and pedestrians.

    14 Mile Road closed under I-75 for interchange construction starting Monday

    Interchange construction will require the closure of 14 Mile Road under I-75 next week in the city of Troy. Starting at 9 a.m. Monday, Nov. 9, through-traffic on 14 Mile Road will be detoured continuously until 6 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 15. Posted detours will include John R. Road, Maple Road, and Stephenson Highway in both directions. Access will be maintained to Oakland Mall during the week.

    The closure is needed for crews to pave and apply final striping to 14 Mile Road in conjunction with the new diverging diamond interchange design.

    In addition, single-lane closures will occur on northbound I-75 from 13 Mile to 14 Mile roads daily starting at 9 a.m. and ending by 3 p.m. Monday through Thursday. The left lane will be closed Monday, Nov. 9, and Tuesday, Nov. 10. The right lane will be closed Wednesday, Nov. 11, and Thursday, Nov. 12. This work is weather dependent; any precipitation will push the closures back one day.

    A portion of northbound I-75 to have one lane open Wednesday and Thursday in Oakland County

    MDOT contracting crews will be installing pavement markings this week. This work will require reducing northbound I-75 to only one open lane from 12 Mile to Adams roads continuously starting at 9 a.m. Wednesday, Nov. 4, and ending at 6 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 5. As the application process continues, there may be short-term closures of northbound I-75 exit and entrance ramps. This work is weather dependent, and any form of precipitation will push back the lane opening by one day.
