Project information: The Grand River Avenue bridge over I-94 is being rebuilt in advance of future freeway work based on its age and importance to local street mobility and connectivity. This work is expected to begin in February with the new bridge opening to traffic in late 2022.

The I-94 modernization project will improve safety and mobility by rebuilding roughly 7 miles of freeway between Conner Avenue and I-96. Included in this project is utility and bridge replacements, improvements to freeway interchanges, and adding an additional travel lane. Additional information is available at www.I94Detroit.org.
