The Ann Arbor I-94 Construction Zone runs from Carpenter Road to State Street. Carpenter Rd is just east of the US-23 interchange. The US-23/I-94 interchange is also on the improvement list. The press release also mentions improvements to the I-94/US-12 interchange.

Ann Arbor I-94 Construction Timing

Construction is scheduled to start in July. Construction should end in November. During the construction time, expect lane closures at night and on the weekends. The plan is for two weekends with the highway closed in one direction. They also expect three weekend closures for the US23/I94 interchange::

  • SB23-I94 ramp
  • NB23-I94 ramp
  • EB94-US23 ramp

There will be no lane or road closures on high traffic weeks: holiday weekends, Ann Arbor Art Fair, or Michigan Home Football Games.

Thoughts on Ann Arbor I-94 Construction

We use this section of I-94 on a daily basis. At least the lane and highway closures will occur in off-peak hours. The I-94/US-12 interchange desperately needs repairs. The ramp to WB-94 has had a pothole problem for a few years.

Ann Arbor with Kids is your go-to source for Ann Arbor Family Fun. It got its start in an activity list that I was compiling for the playgroup I ran at our church. When my daughter started preschool, the other moms were thrilled to hear about my list. I decided to take the list public in 2009.
