WB I-94 ramp to Merriman Road and SB Merriman Road ramp to westbound I-94 now open.
The Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT) is continuing road work on I-94 near the airport as part of its bridge repair project.
Beginning at 9 p.m. on September 13, eastbound and westbound I-94 will be reduced to one lane each between US-24 and I-275 to shift traffic from the two right lanes over to the two left lanes. Traffic will be shifted throughout the work zone.
Beginning September 14, the eastbound I-94 ramp to northbound Merriman Road will close until mid-October, along with the following ramps:
Ramps closing to westbound I-94:
- Northbound Wayne Road
- Southbound Wayne Road
- Northbound Merriman Road
Ramps closing to eastbound I-94:
- Northbound Middle Belt Road
- Southbound Merriman Road
Previously closed ramps that are now open:
- Westbound I-94 ramp to Merriman Road
- Southbound Middle Belt Road ramp to westbound I-94
- Southbound Merriman Road ramp to westbound I-94
The Ecorse Road on ramps to eastbound and westbound I-94 are closed through the fall.
While access to the airport will be maintained with at least one ramp always open, it will be limited and drivers are strongly encouraged to use the airport access off Eureka Road near I-275.
The project is expected to be complete in the fall. A project map can be found at https://bit.ly/2N5fzH3.
