I-75 Road and Bridge Repairs Begin in Northern Oakland County

PONTIAC, MI — Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT) contract crews recently started a bridge and road repair project in northern Oakland County. Initial work will focus on the section between Baldwin Road and M-24 (Lapeer Road). Two lanes will be open on northbound and southbound I-75 during peak travel times. Both directions of the freeway may be reduced to a single lane on weeknights and at all times on weekends.

The northbound and southbound Joslyn Road entrance ramps to northbound I-75 are currently closed. Ramp traffic is detoured using Brown and Baldwin roads to access northbound I-75. Bridge repair requires closing one lane in each direction on Joslyn Road under I-75, and on Baldwin Road over I-75. Around-the-clock lane closures have also been put in place on northbound and southbound I-75 between M-24 and Baldwin Road until early August.

The project includes repairing 21 bridges between South Boulevard and Baldwin Road in Auburn Hills. Included in the work is resurfacing both directions of I-75 between South Boulevard and Giddings Road. The road work includes repairing the ramps at the Chrysler Drive and M-24 (Lapeer Road) interchanges. All work on this $21-million investment is expected to be completed in November.

I-75 ramps and lanes on local roads will be closed at various times to accommodate the bridge work. Giddings Road and Featherstone Drive will be closed over I-75 for approximately 30 days with scheduled dates to be determined.
