North of I-696 to North of 13 Mile Road Flyover – July 2022
The I-75 Modernization project continues to make progress. Last week we announced that tunneling operations have resumed as well as the reopening of the Lincoln Avenue bridge over I-75. In this video you get a bird’s eye view of the Lincoln Avenue bridge prior to opening, cleanup efforts at the Ground Movement Zone, and progress at the I-696/I-75 "Braid" interchange, and 12 Mile Road diverging diamond interchange. Stay tuned for additional updates.
Lincoln Avenue Bridge is now open to through traffic only
The Lincoln Avenue bridge was demolished earlier this year and has now reopened to through traffic only. The rebuilding of this bridge is part of the new I-75/I-696 exit ramp for 11 Mile Road “Braid” configuration that will reopen later this year. While crews continue to work on the new exit ramps and surrounding service drives, traffic can now use the bridge to commute over I-75 again.
Learn more about the new I-75/I-696 “Braid” design on our website resources and stay tuned for more updates, including the full reopening later this year.
Thanks to the hard work and dedication of the team we are happy to announce tunneling operationshave resumed. This spring, crews were able to access the original Tunnel Boring Machine (TBM) via the repair shaft and removed it. The contracting crews then lowered in a new TBM (utilizing some parts from the original) allowing them to resumetunneling approximately 100 feet underground.
The TBM isnow mining northward on its path to the 12 Mile Road pump station site. The TBM will then be removed from the 12 Mile Road pump station shaft, be relocated back to the launch site at the I-696 interchange and begin working its way south to the Meyers Avenue shaft site. After the TBM has completed its job in late 2023, it will be removed from the ground and decommissioned as crews complete pump station and drop shaft work and finalize the tunnel drainage system.
