For the most part, we’ve been pretty lucky lately when it comes to construction on the weekends. Our luck is about to change my friends. There are two full freeway closures scheduled for this weekend.  As always, projects are weather permitting. 

*NOTE: The closures may reopen Sunday afternoon for Mother’s Day and the Red Wings’ home game*

  • 9pm Friday-5am Monday
  • Detours will be posted
  • EASTBOUND DETOUR: EB M-5 to EB M-102 (8 Mile) to NB US-24 to reconnect with EB I-696
  • WESTBOUND DETOUR: SB US-24 to WB M-102 (8 Mile) to WB M-5 to connect to WB I-96
  • Expect heavy delays this weekend

WAYNE/OAKLAND COUNTY BORDER

Full closure on M-10 Lodge at 8 Mile
