This Weekend: Bridge Work To Close Big Beaver Road Under I-75

MICHIGAN (CBS DETROIT) - Michigan Department of Transportation contracting crews will be closing both directions of Big Beaver Road under I-75 for bridge demolition starting at 10 p.m. Friday, March 20.

The closure is needed to allow for the demolition of the southbound I-75 bridge over Big Beaver Road.

Currently, both directions of I-75 have two lanes open with all traffic using the northbound side of the freeway, separated by a temporary concrete barrier.

This configuration will allow for the southbound lanes and bridges to be reconstructed this year. Traffic on I-75 will not be impacted by the weekend demolition.

During the closure, detours will be posted in each direction using Livernois, Maple, and Crooks roads. Both directions of Big Beaver Road will reopen by 5 a.m. Monday, March 23. Upon reopening, both directions of Big Beaver Road will have two lanes open under I-75.
