Orange Barrel Update: Construction Continues


Several road projects will continue. Here's an orange barrel update:

Everett Drive

Starting Tuesday, Everett Drive over I-496 will be closed for bridge repairs. A detour is posted. The southbound detour directs motorists to head west on St. Joseph Highway to Clare Street, then south to W. Malcom X Street. The northbound detour directs motorists to head east on W. Malcolm X Street to S. Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd., then north to W. St. Joseph Street and west on W. St. Joseph Street.

On I-496 under Everett Drive, there are shoulder closures in each direction for repairs to the median pier.

Eastbound St. Joseph Street to W. Malcolm X Street

Also starting Tuesday, there are intermittent lane closures on this bridge over I-496 for deck repair.

Clemens Street

The double lane closure scheduled this week on eastbound I-496 for a bridge deck pour at Clemens Street is on hold until further notice. The work is dependent on weather.

I-96 (Livingston County)

Tuesday night, there will be a double lane closure in each direction on I-96 near Latson Road. The closure will be in place between 8 p.m. and 5 a.m. the following morning.

The closures are needed so crews can implement a traffic shift along I-96 to allow for continued construction of the center pier for the new Latson Road bridge over I-96.
