ATTENTION: Westbound I-94 Cooper St. on and off ramp will be closed this week Tuesday to accommodate the reconstruction of the Cooper St. interchange. Traffic will be detoured utilizing the following map.



Cooper Street Detour


This upcoming week, nightly lane closures will be used on westbound I-94 near Elm to complete shoulder rehabilitation work. During the day all lanes will be open, and traffic will be maintained on I-94 utilizing shoulder closures and reduced speed zones along I-94 between M-60 and Sargent Road will remain in place to delineate the work zone. Cooper Street over I-94 remains closed until October and the eastbound I-94 Cooper Street on and off ramps remain closed until early July. Eastbound I-94 Elm Ave. off ramp will be closed until early July.


An I-94 Construction Video has been uploaded to YouTube and provides further information about the ongoing project.


June 24, 2019 – Last week, the contractor completed pouring the concrete cap over the lightweight fill on the new Cooper St. bridge over I-94. Additionally, the contractor continued reconstructing the existing median on I-94 from Sargent to Elm.


Work on the new Cooper Street bridge over I-94 will continue throughout the week. Additionally, crews will also continue work on the new planter walls for the Cooper Street interchange this week.


This week, crews will continue reconstructing the Cooper street interchange. The contractor will continue placing embankment, placing storm sewer, and paving the hot mix asphalt base course within the closure limits of the Cooper Street interchange. Additionally, the contractor will pour the sleeper slabs and begin placing steel reinforcement for the continuously reinforced concrete pavement on the new eastbound I-94 alignment.


When Cooper street reopens the interchange layout will be significantly different. The new interchange layout will consist of two new roundabouts. To provide more information on roundabouts a link to the Roundabout Information located on MDOT’s website will provide answers to questions about roundabouts and how to safely navigate one.
