(WWJ) -- Those planning to travel along I-75 in Oakland County this weekend should be prepared to navigate some detours.
The Michigan Department of Transportation says both directions of I-75 will be closed from late Friday until Sunday evening.
Northbound I-75 will be shut down from 14 Mile to Big Beaver roads, while southbound I-75 from Big Beaver to Rochester roads will also be closed.
During the closures, northbound I-75 traffic will be detoured east on 14 Mile Road to northbound John R. Road, then westbound Big Beaver Road, and back to northbound I-75.
Additionally, the ramps at 12 Mile, 14 Mile and Rochester roads to northbound I-75 will be closed.
MDOT says they are shutting down the freeway in order to apply high-friction surface treatment to the sections of I-75 that were damaged during a tanker fire last month.
