Motorists around Flint this weekend are getting a reprieve! A massive detour to I-75 is getting rescheduled due to the expected weather.

The Michigan Department of Transportation says that the I-75 detour that was originally scheduled to begin on Sunday as work was done under I-475 will now be pushed back a week due to the weather. Traffic on northbound I-75 will now be detoured beginning at 6 a.m. on Sunday, May 11th with the detour now expected to end by 6 a.m. on Thursday, May 15th.

A refresher of the planned detour: northbound I-75 traffic at the south junction of I-475 will be rerouted north on I-475 to westbound I-69, then back to I-75. Traffic heading to north toward Saginaw can continue on I-475 to north junction to access northbound I-75. Also, northbound US-23 will have lane closures in effect at Bristol Road with two lanes open at all times for duration of the work.

All work is part of a $13.3 million project that includes resurfacing 19 miles of I-75 from the Genesee/Oakland County line to the I-475 north junction including bridge work on I-75 over Cook Road, I-75 under Grand Blanc and Fenton Roads and I-75 over the Flint River and Flushing Road.
