If you drive through Warren… Check this out



Local 4 Blog by Heather Zara


If your commute takes you through the city of Warren, you have probably already figured out that the I-696 ramps to Mound Rd. have been closed for the last couple of weeks- and that ramp closure will be in place until early June.

Here’s another addition to the $24 million project dedicated to repairs through that area: a 9-week full closure of Mound Road over I-696. Uh oh…



Who:Our friends at MDOT are rolling out the barrels-don’t be hard on them-they’re making our roads nicer 🙂

What:It’s a part of the bridge rehabilitation project along I-696 between Dequindre and Schoenherr

When: It starts tomorrow, Friday, March 27th at 9pm and will last until early June

Where: Mound Rd. in both directions right over I-696 in Warren will be blocked

Why: To help facilitate the Fall 2009 completion date of the entire project!

How:NB Mound traffic will be redirected via the EB I-696 service drive, NB Van Dyke Avenue & the WB I-696 service drive to access NB Mound. The posted detour for SB Mound traffic includes the WB I-696 service drive, SB Dequindre & EB I-696 service drive to get back to SB Mound.


Have a great day and check in with me on Twitter for updates throughout the morning! You can follow me @HeatherZara. See you tomorrow.
