Installation of Bridge Supports Closes University Over I-75

MDOT closes bridge over expressway to install temporary supports.

Installation of Bridge Supports Closes University Over I-75

Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT) bridge inspectors have discovered a critical condition with the beams on the bridge that carries University Drive over I-75, MDOT announced on Friday, Jan. 17. 

Because of the faults, MDOT is closing University Drive over the freeway to traffic until temporary supports can be installed. Temporary supports will need to be installed on both sides of the median pier and, according to MDOT, are being expedited to happen as soon as possible.

Associated closures:

  • Westbound University loop ramp to southbound I-75
  • Eastbound University loop ramp to northbound I-75
  • I-75 Exit ramps to University will be restricted to only through movement or right turns onto University Drive
  • Additional traffic restrictions may be necessary between Opdyke Road and Cross Creek Parkway

MDOT anticipates this closure will remain for approximately one week from Friday, Jan. 17.
