TRAFFIC RESTRICTIONS:                     
This work will require closing two lanes on southbound I-75 at the Coldwater Road overpass. Motorists are advised to seek an alternate route to avoid delays. The northbound I-475 ramp to southbound I-75 will also be closed and detoured via the Mt. Morris Road interchange to reduce backups near the work zone.

SAFETY BENEFITS:
This work will ensure the structural integrity of the overpass by repairing a beam damaged during a high-load hit in April.
