In 2016, a $75 million improvement project included pavement repair and replacement in Wayne and Oakland counties, including Novi, Farmington Hills, and Livonia. Work included:
Repairing 16 bridges, with proposed work varying from patching to an epoxy overlay.
This continuation of Reviving I-275 has been in development for several years but was postponed so MDOT could secure additional funding to perform a more complete renovation of this stretch of I-275 rather than the original "mill and resurface" asphalt replacement. With the additional funding, the State of Michigan is now investing approximately $300 million to address roads, bridges, drainage culverts, traffic signals, signs, and ITS.
