Road Closures & Alternate Routes

Bridge demo to close the I-75 Freeway from I-696 to Square Lake Road

Starting Friday, May 10th at 10pm, crews will be closing both directions of I-75 for bridge demolition at Wattles and Crooks/Corporate. Since these bridges are over the freeway, it is not safe to do this work with freeway traffic moving underneath.  At the time of the closing, roadway pavement repairs will also occur.   We will completely close the freeway and ramps from I-696 to Square Lake until 5am on Monday, May 13th.

As we are starting into the more complex work, the Wattles bridge and pedestrian bridge will remain closed until early August for their total replacement/reconstruction.  Local posted detours for both directions for the time period is Crooks, Long Lake, and Livernois Roads.  Pedestrians will be able to cross at Big Beaver and Long Lake during this three-month timeframe.  The alternate route for I-75 during this weekend is Woodward Avenue. 

The ramps to and from northbound I-75 at Corporate/Crooks will remain closed until early August for reconstruction.  The detour to access Northbound I-75 is Crooks Road to Westbound M-59.  To access Corporate Drive/Crooks the alternate route is to exit at Adams to Long Lake.

We apologize for the inconvenience and encourage you to use the above suggested routes or find alternate routes to fit your destinations during this longer time period of ramp and bridge closures using the MDOT Mi Drive interactive map or your choice of mapping services.

Starting Friday, April 26th at 10pm, crews will be closing both directions of Big Beaver Road under I-75 for bridge demolition that carries northbound I-75 over the local road.

During this closure we will also be closing the I-75 Southbound ramp to Eastbound Big Beaver.  This closure is required as traffic will be unable to pass under I-75 during this time.  The ramp will reopen with the opening of Big Beaver by 5am on Monday, April 29th.
