Work has started!

All lanes and ramps on I-696 remain OPEN at this time. However, you will begin to see more and more activity in preparation for the closure of westbound I-696 between I-94 and I-75. We plan to announce a date for the freeway closure in Macomb County later this week. Work in Oakland County is tentatively scheduled to begin mid-May with additional information to be provided soon.

In the meantime, some of the things you might see:  

  • Equipment moving in
  • Materials being delivered
  • Crews installing temporary traffic signing
  • Temporary traffic signals being installed on 11 Mile Road/I-696 service drives
  • Work to reconfigure the intersection of Harper Road and M-102  

To complete this work there will be intermittent SINGLE LANE CLOSURES on 11 Mile Road. Harper Road will be CLOSED between 8 Mile Road and M-102.  

As always, please feel free to contact us with any questions: mdot-movingmacomb@michigan.gov
