Backups and snarls will seriously affect southbound traffic until July. According to the Michigan Department of Transportation all the ramps on mile roads and at the I-96/I-696/M-5 interchange will be involved in the re-construction.
The northbound closure will commence in July with an estimated completion by September 2016.
The project also includes shoulder work on I-275, concrete repairs on I-696, repairs on 16 bridges, drainage improvements, and intelligent transportation systems (ITS) work.
Toebe Construction is the state contractor.
The southbound I-275 detour will require eastbound I-96 traffic to continue onto I-696 to southbound M-10 (Lodge Freeway) to southbound M-39 (Southfield Freeway), then westbound I-96 back to southbound I-275.
