This modernization project reconstructs approximately seven miles of I-94 between Conner Street and I-96 in Detroit, Michigan. Improvements include modernizing interchanges, reconstructing bridges crossing over the freeway, adding a travel lane in each direction, and modifying the existing service drives in ways that improve local travel patterns.

Project sponsors are the Federal Highway Administration, Michigan Department of Transportation and the city of Detroit. MDOT has management and oversight responsibility and will oversee all project activities from the preliminary engineering and environmental review 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 complexities of this project, MDOT 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.
