Macomb County Progress

We are getting close, but there is still some work to do before I-696 can be opened safely in both directions. Unpredictable winter weather precludes us from announcing an exact date at this time. Information posted to MDOT’s MiDrive will be updated for the time being to show lane closures extending into early January, however, every effort is being focused on reopening EB and WB I-696 as soon as possible. Until then, traffic will continue to be staged in its current configuration. While all the necessary protective measures continue to be employed, we are experiencing prolonged concrete cure times in these colder temperatures. Placement of the travel lanes, ramps, valley gutter and shoulders continue in earnest while we prepare to switch traffic back to normal operations. Shoulder completion and other miscellaneous work may continue under intermittent lane closures once traffic is restored to normal.

Oakland County Progress

All planned contract work in Oakland County is complete! There is no anticipated need for additional lane closures in Oakland County to complete any work as part of the Restore the Reuther project.
