Construction along Dingell Drive to Impact Traffic Flow

Construction along Dingell Drive to Impact Traffic Flow

March 12, 2024

Customers heading to Detroit Metropolitan Wayne County Airport (DTW) should allow extra drive time due to construction. 

In January, the Wayne County Airport Authority (WCAA) launched a multi-project construction program to rehabilitate roadway tunnels on Dingell Drive. The projects impact traffic flow on Dingell Drive from approximately the Evans Terminal to the Eureka Road exit and entrance ramps near the McNamara Terminal.

From March 18, 2024, to mid-2025, northbound traffic on Dingell Drive will be closed. All traffic will be shifted to the southbound side of the roadway and tunnels.

Early in the Summer of 2025, the closure of Southbound Dingell Drive is expected to begin shifting all traffic to the Northbound side.  Work is anticipated to be complete with all lanes reopened by the summer of 2027.

Construction will continue year-round until the anticipated conclusion in 2027. During this time, customers may experience delays while driving on the DTW campus. Departing travelers are encouraged to plan ahead and give themselves additional time to reach their gate. Access to parking decks, lots and the Westin hotel will not be impacted.
