Construction along Dingell Drive to Impact Traffic Flow

Construction along Dingell Drive to Impact Traffic Flow

January 4, 2024

Beginning January 8, customers heading to Detroit Metropolitan Wayne County Airport (DTW) will need to allow extra drive time due to construction. This month, the Wayne County Airport Authority (WCAA) will start the first of a multi-project construction program to rehabilitate roadway tunnels on Dingell Drive. The projects will impact traffic flow on Dingell Drive from approximately the Evans Terminal to the Eureka Road exit and entrance ramps near the McNamara Terminal.

Northbound and southbound traffic on Dingell Drive will be reduced to two lanes in each direction through February 29, 2024, weather permitting. Afterward, from March 2024 to mid-2025, northbound traffic on Dingell Drive will be reduced to one lane. All traffic will be shifted to the southbound side of the roadway and tunnels.

Construction will continue year-round until the anticipated conclusion in 2027. During this time, customers may experience delays while driving on the DTW campus. Departing travelers are encouraged to plan ahead and give themselves additional time to reach their gate. Access to parking decks, lots and the Westin hotel will not be impacted.
