Crews will be demolishing the Stephenson Highway and Bellaire pedestrian bridges and set bridge beams on the 11 Mile Road overpass.

Traffic will be detoured to Woodward Avenue. Northbound traffic will go west on 8 Mile Road then take eastbound Square Lake Road back to northbound I-75. Southbound I-75 traffic will use westbound Square Lake Road to Woodward, then eastbound 8 Mile Road back to southbound I-75.

The construction is part of the Modernize I-75 project.
