I-94 roadwork: Eastbound lanes to close Friday night for the weekend
Both eastbound lanes of Interstate 94 along the south side of Ann Arbor will be completely closed to traffic this weekend beginning 10 p.m. Friday.
The eastbound I-94 closure extends from the junction at M-14 on the west side of Ann Arbor to the Carpenter Road overpass on the east side. Access to eastbound I-94 from north and southbound U.S. 23 will be maintained during the construction.

The posted detour route is along M-14 and U.S. 23.
Eastbound I-94 will re-open to traffic 5 a.m. Monday.
It's the second closure of eastbound I-94 this summer for the resurfacing project. MDOT officials said they chose to close the road for the work in order to complete it in a faster time frame.
The resurfacing project was designed to close each direction of I-94 separately for a total of four weekends. In the contract for the work, MDOT outlined a number of weekends when the highway cannot be closed due to major events happening in the Ann Arbor area.
From 10 p.m. Friday to 5 a.m. Monday, MDOT is also planning to close the exit ramp from westbound I-94 to southbound U.S. 23. A posted detour will advise drivers to take U.S. 12, also known as Michigan Avenue.
