Westbound I-696 will close this weekend in Oakland County, MDOT says.

It will be closed from Dequindre Road to US-24/Telegraph, from 9 p.m. Friday until 5 a.m. Monday.

Drivers can take I-75 or I-94 to M-102/8 Mile to US-24/Telegraph as a detour.

This will be the first I-696 closure in Oakland County. Eastbound I-696 will remain open.

WB I-696 has been closed in Macomb County since April 27 until November as part of MDOT'S massive reconstruction project.
