Portion of I-75 closed this weekend as crews demolish bridge

- MDOT is starting a new phase of its Interstate 75 modernization project that will leave some drivers looking for detours all weekend long.

I-75 will be closed in both directions all weekend long berween Crooks Road and M-59, which is about a 7-mile stretch. The portion will be closed as crews demolish the Squirrel Road overpass.

The closure starts at 11 p.m. on Friday, and will be open again by 5 a.m. on Monday. Square Lake Road will also be closed under I-75 for the bridge work. Detours will be posted.

Detours for I-75 will be as follows:

  • Northbound traffic will be detoured to northbound Crooks Road, then westbound M-59 and back to I-75
  • Southbound traffic will use eastbound M-59, then southbound Crooks Road back to I-75.

In addition to the freeway closure, the following ramps will be closed beginning at 7 p.m. Friday and ending by 5 a.m. Monday.

  • Eastbound and westbound Big Beaver Road to northbound I-75
  • Crooks Road to northbound I-75
  • Eastbound and westbound M-59 to southbound I-75
  • Eastbound Square Lake road to southbound I-75
