Southfield ramps to I-96 to and from downtown to close Friday, Oct. 11 for emergency repairs

MDOT closing I-96/M-39 (Southfield Freeway) interchange ramps for at least three weeks for bridge repairs in Detroit






I-96 (Jeffries Freeway)

M-39 (Southfield Freeway)



Friday, Oct. 11, 2019

8 p.m.



November 2019



The Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT) will be performing urgent bridge repairs at the I-96/M-39 interchange in Detroit on two heavily traveled freeway ramps that have had to be closed previously for emergency patching. This project is expected to ensure the ramps can remain open during the winter months.


The ramps are expected to be closed for approximately three weeks but could take longer depending on the weather. Wet or cold weather could affect curing time for concrete and extend the closure.


Project map



The westbound I-96 ramps to northbound and southbound M-39 will be closed for approximately three weeks along with the northbound and southbound M-39 ramps to eastbound I-96. There may be occasional lane closures on I-96 in the local and express lanes along with the M-39 service drive that runs under the bridges under repair.



Westbound I-96 traffic heading for northbound M-39 will be detoured further west to northbound US-24 (Telegraph Road) to eastbound M-102 (8 Mile Road) to northbound M-39.


Westbound I-96 traffic headed for southbound M-39 will be detoured further west to southbound US-24 (Telegraph Road) to eastbound M-153 (Ford Road) to southbound M-39.


Northbound and southbound M-39 traffic headed for eastbound I-96 will be detoured to eastbound M-5 (Grand River Avenue) to eastbound I-96.


SAFETY BENEFIT: While these ramp closures will cause major inconvenience to drivers, these repairs are necessary to ensure the safety and longevity of the bridge structures.

NEZ Property Tax Reduction Available to Qualified Rosedale Residents

If you own and occupy your home in the Rosedale Park neighborhood AND you purchased it after 12/31/96, you are likely eligible for a 15-25% reduction on your property taxes!  Many eligible homeowners are already benefitting from this program, known as the Neighborhood Enterprise Zone Homestead property tax abatement.   The NEZ tax reduction certificate is good for 15 years.


How can you tell if you are already enrolled ?

If you are currently receiving two tax bills – one for a parcel #22-xxxxxxx and another for a parcel #27-xxxxxxx – you are already enrolled in this program.  If you purchased your home after 12/31/96 and are receiving only one tax bill, for a parcel #22-xxxxxxx, you need to apply for the NEZH!

Necessary qualifications

Here are the requirements for the NEZH, courtesy of the Detroit Assessor’s Office:

How to apply for the program

You may pick up an application in person at the Coleman A. Young Municipal Center, Office of the Assessor, in Suite 804; you may request one by email to; or you may call 313- 224-6989 to ask that one be mailed to you.
Is there a deadline to file ?

The Office of the Assessor accepts applications all year. Please keep in mind that the abatement is effective the year after you purchase the property.
Applications submitted before October 1 will be processed to apply to the following year’s taxes.  Any application submitted after October 1 will be processed the following year.

Necessary documentation

I’ve heard that NEZ Homesteads are being extended -  is this true ?

YES !!! If you are currently in the program and are nearing the end of your abatement, you will simply need to sign an affidavit stating that the property continues to be your principal residence and that you will commit to a minimum of $500 in improvements over a 3-year period and a new certificate will be issued for your property.

For additional information, contact the Detroit Assessor’s office at the number above.  And feel free to share this information with friends and associates.
