Michigan bridge replacement to slow traffic

| Thursday, March 28, 2002

The Michigan Department of Transportation is set to begin rehabbing the eastbound and westbound Interstate 94 bridges over Inkster Road at the Taylor-Romulus border this Friday, slowing traffic.

The project, which is expected to last through October, will affect about 134,000 drivers per day on the freeway, according to MDOT. A temporary lane will be laid in each direction on the median to keep three lanes of traffic moving during peak travel times. There will be some evenings and weekends when the freeway is reduced to one lane in each direction.
