The I-94 Modernization Project addresses the reconstruction of the I-94 freeway in Detroit from east of the I-96/I-94 interchange to east of Conner Avenue. The project includes 67 bridges and two major interchanges at M-10 (Lodge) and I-75 (Chrysler) freeways.
Project sponsors are the Federal Highway Administration, Michigan Department of Transportation, and the City of Detroit. FHWA and the City of Detroit are cost sharing partners. MDOT has management and oversight responsibility, and will oversee all project activities from the preliminary engineering and environmental phases through final construction.
The MDOT senior project manager is Terry Stepanski, P.E., who provides overall administration, coordination, and technical oversight to the project.
Due to the phases and complexities of this project, MDOT has hired HNTB as the Owner’s Representative, to serve as an extension of the senior project manager, and to assist with project design, management, cost, schedule, and quality.
