All 12 Mile Road ramps to southbound M-5 with access to all freeways remain open.
Southbound M-5 repairs are expected to be finished this weekend, weather permitting. If work goes as planned, barrels are expected to be removed from the southbound side of the roadway and the northbound side will then be closed from 12 Mile Road to Pontiac Trail.
The following ramps will be closed:
- The westbound M-5 ramp to northbound M-5
- The northbound I-275 ramp to northbound M-5
All mile roads crossing northbound M-5 will have at least one lane open through the intersections crossing M-5.
