DETROIT--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Motorists headed to Detroit Metropolitan Airport (DTW) from I-94
or Merriman Road (north of the airport) should expect significant delays
entering and exiting the airport due to critical roadwork planned
Beginning this week, road crews will begin the complete reconstruction
of the Goddard Rd. Extension bridge crossing Merriman Rd. at DTW's north
entrance. As a result, traffic entering and exiting the Airport via
Merriman Rd./I-94 will be reduced to one lane in each direction.
Overnight, traffic will be stopped at the airport's north entrance
altogether periodically as necessary to remove and replace structural
beams for the bridge above.
Meanwhile, traffic normally using the Goddard Rd. bridge across Merriman
Rd. will be re-routed via airport service drives. Detour signage will be
displayed directing traffic along the alternate route.
Airport employees, especially those at the North Terminal who park in
the airport's Blue Deck Employee area, should allow extra time to park
and report to their workstations.
Due to other roadway projects elsewhere surrounding Detroit Metro
Airport, customers are urged to visit the Airport's Web site, www.metroairport.com,
when planning an alternate route for the latest traffic and construction
