Northbound I-494 ramps at Highway 55 in Plymouth closing July 5 – early August

The northbound Interstate 494 ramps to and from Highway 55 in Plymouth will close July 5 at 12:01 a.m., weather permitting. The ramps will remain closed through early August, weather permitting. 

Motorists intending to access northbound I-494 from Highway 55 will be detoured to southbound I-494, eastbound I-394 and northbound I-494. Those intending to exit northbound I-494 at Highway 55 will be detoured to northbound I-494, westbound Rockford Road and southbound I-494.

The closures are needed while crews reconstruct both ramps.

The northbound I-494 ramps at Rockford Road will reopen prior to the closing of the northbound I-494 ramps at Highway 55.

Work this year is part of a two-year construction project on I-494 that includes:
·         Repairing pavement on northbound I-494 between I-394 and I-694/94.
·         Adding a third lane on northbound I-494 between Highway 55 and I-94/694.
·         Building noise walls along the interstate.
·         Replacing I-494 bridges over County Road 47 and Schmidt Lake Road
·         Reconstructing the East Fish Lake Road bridge deck over I-494.
·         Repairing several I-494 ramps
