Interstate 75 will be closed in both directions overnight beginning Wednesday evening for bridge beam setting at the Wattles overpass, the Michigan Department of Transportation said. 

Crews will fully close the freeway at 9:30 p.m. Wednesday and reopen it again at 5 a.m. Thursday. The weather could delay the closure, the agency said. 

Southbound I-75 will be closed from Square Lake to 14 Mile. Northbound I-75 will be closed from Big Beaver to Crooks.

Drivers traveling south can exit west on Square Lake Road to southbound Woodward and to eastbound I-696 to get back to I-75.

Northbound drivers can take Big Beaver to northbound Crooks to westbound M-59 back to northbound I-75.
