University Dr. Bridge Over I-75 Closure

University Dr. Bridge Over I-75 CLOSED

University Drive over I-75 will be closed beginning late afternoon on Friday, January 17, 2014. 

Associated closures:

  • WB University loop ramp to SB I-75
  • EB University loop ramp to NB I-75
  • I-75 Exit ramps to University will be restricted to only through movement or right turns onto University Drive
  • Additional traffic restrictions may be necessary between Opdyke Road and Cross Creek Parkway


MDOT bridge inspectors have discovered a critical condition with the beams on the bridge that carries University Drive over I-75.  It has been determined that it is necessary to close University Drive over the freeway to traffic until temporary supports can be installed.  It is anticipated that this closure will remain for approximately one week. 

MDOT and the Auburn Hills Police Department will send out updated information as it becomes available.  These alerts will be sent through our account, Twitter @AHPOLICE, and our Facebook Page.

We urge motorists to avoid the area if possible and plan alternate routes for their commutes.
