MDOT I-75 Modernization Project

 

I-75 is getting a new look from M-59 to Eight Mile Road. The $840 million project is being constructed by the Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT) to meet current safety and FHWA standards. Beginning with the Bloomfield Township segment from Square Lake Road to South Boulevard, major reconstruction began August 15th and includes: rebuilding the road way, switching on and off ramps from the left side to the right side of the roadway at the Square Lake Road interchange, replacing the bridges at Adams, Squirrel, and Square Lake Roads, adding an interior lane for high occupancy vehicles (HOV), evaluating the need for an additional carpool lot, upgrading the existing Adams Road carpool lot, improving drainage, and when possible, connecting the safety path segments in the Township. A comprehensive plan for the 18 mile corridor will be pulled together with design guidelines that address aesthetic elements, such as decorative brickwork, attractive railing, and landscaping.
