MDOT will be starting work on intersection and pedestrian safety improvements on the eastbound I-696 service drive at Woodward and Main Street on Tuesday, July 30.
The project includes milling and resurfacing the road surface, and changes in the lane configuration on the Service Drive. Specifically, the right-most lane is being eliminated for a portion of this road segment, and the pedestrian crossing on Main Street across the Service Drive is being reconfigured and will be much shorter.
There will be lane closures on the Service Drive and Woodward during this process. Drivers are advised to pay attention to the portable message signs on each roadway advising of the changes, and to expect delays during this project.
