Six Mile Bridge over I-275 to Close Aug. 2 for Eight WeeksThe Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT) will close the Six Mile Road bridge over I-275 beginning Monday, Aug. 2. The closure to repair the bridge will last approximately eight weeks. 

The I-275 exit and entrance ramps will remain open. Some lanes on 275 may close intermittently during off-peak hours for the bridge project.

MDOT has created this detour map on how to proceed westbound and eastbound on Six Mile Road.

Those traveling eastbound (the blue arrow) on Six Mile Road shall go north on Haggerty Road to Seven Mile Road. Follow east to Newburgh Road and head south to return to Six Mile Road.

To travel westbound (the red arrow), MDOT suggests getting on 275 north to the Seven Mile Road exit and briefly drive west to get on southbound 275. Follow it to Six Mile Road exit to proceed west.

The bridge closure is part of Revive 275, a project to repair and rebuild 24 miles of I-275 between Six Mile Road and Will Carlton Road in Wayne County in six phases over four years.

The Five Mile bridge repair was delayed until 2022, so the timeline on the Six Mile bridge project was moved up.

Thank you for your continued patience as MDOT works to make our roads both safer and better for you.
