The 40 year-old portion of the I-96 freeway that runs through Livonia and Redford Township has reached its life expectancy and is scheduled for a complete reconstruction starting next week. It was originally constructed in 1971.
The long anticipated project is a complete rebuild of freeway between Newburgh and Telegraph roads. It is anticipated that the closure will last 7 months.
Weather permitting, full closure of the freeway is scheduled for 7 a.m. April 5. Ramps and interchanges will be closed first, after 7 p.m. on Friday, April 4, followed by the rest of the freeway.
Schoolcraft Road will be open during construction. The road will be reduced to a single lane in each direction.
This project will reconstruct the pavement, upgrade 37 overpasses, replace the drainage system, and greatly improve the safety of the freeway. Aesthetic improvements are included, such as native plantings and new fencing.
The freeway will reopen October 2014.
