Winter is coming and that means construction crews are working to get road projects done ahead of freezing weather. For this weekend, it means many freeways in Detroit will see detours and lane closures.

Note that I-94 is closed from 75 to Conner.

Keep in mind that multiple events are occurring downtown Friday night, the Pistons play at the LCA Saturday night, and the Lions have a home game on Sunday.

MDOT also has a map of construction taking place in the Metro area. Here’s a rundown of what to expect:
