The ramp from eastbound I-696 to eastbound I-94 in Macomb County is closed.
The closure is located at the St. Clair Shores and Roseville border and has nearly 30,000 drivers per day. The project was originally scheduled for 2011, but was expedited due to public complaints about how badly the road was deteriorating. According to the MDot website the shut down will last until October 22. The heaviest traffic volumes for this area are during rush hour. Traffic will be forced off the freeway at Gratiot. Suggested detours after the jump!
The official detour is to head north on Gratiot to eastbound Metro Parkway and then back onto I-94. Drivers can use other routes, including 12 Mile, to get to I-94, depending on their destination.
