M-10 (Lodge Freeway) will close this weekend between I-75 and Jefferson Avenue as part of a $3.6 million project to repair the I-75/M-10 interchange.

Work is to begin 9 p.m. Friday and the freeway is to reopen 5 a.m. Monday, the Michigan Department of Transportation said in a news release.

Northbound and southbound lanes on M-10 will be closed, in addition to several ramps, as crews demolish the pedestrian bridge over M-10 near M-85 (Fort Street).

The following ramps will be closed:

  • Northbound and southbound I-75 ramps to southbound M-10 ramps (will reopen Monday)
  • Northbound M-10 ramp to northbound I-75 (will reopen Monday)
  • Northbound M-10 ramp to southbound I-75 (will reopen late August)
  • Northbound I-75 ramp to northbound M-10 (will reopen this fall)

In addition to work in Detroit, MDOT is planning an $8 million upgrade to signs along I-696 in Oakland County from Novi to Dequindre roads, including signs on ramps.

Work begins 9 a.m. Monday and is expected to be complete by fall. Eastbound and westbound I-696 will have lane closures at various locations for 10-14 daytime periods. The following closures are expected during the project:

  • Mid-July to early August, between I-275 and U.S.-24 (Telegraph Road)
  • Early August to mid-August, westbound I-696 ramp to US-24 (Telegraph Road)
  • Early August to mid-October, between U.S.-24 (Telegraph Road) and Dequindre Road.
