Preparing for work on both sides of The Lodge freeway

Henry Ford Hospital Campus Progress

As early as June 1, crews will enclose the entire Destination: Grand construction site with fencing. This will close roads and shift traffic patterns around the Detroit campus – primarily on the south side of West Grand Boulevard near the Henry Ford Brigitte Harris Cancer Pavilion.

To get to the Henry Ford Brigitte Harris Cancer Pavilion: Use West Grand Blvd. and turn right at West Milwaukee Street to go behind the building and turn left into the parking area. Upon leaving the Cancer pavilion, all traffic will exit left (north) out onto West Grand Blvd.

Primary roads to close include (*may be subject to change):

  • West Milwaukee Street from the Southbound John C. Lodge Service Dr. to Trumbull St.
  • Lincoln Street from West Grand Blvd. to Holden Ave.
  • West Baltimore Ave. from Southbound John C. Lodge Service Dr. to Lincoln St.
  • Wilbur Ave.*

There will be minimal impact on roads and traffic on the north side of West Grand Blvd. for those coming and going from Henry Ford Hospital.

Also, we continue to remove the now-vacant former office building on the southwest corner of W. Grand Blvd. and the Lodge Freeway service drive. The building will be taken down piece by piece, a process that’s intended to keep dust levels low. In addition, crews will be recycling as much building material as possible.

As part of this process, there will be slight impacts to traffic, including:

  • The closure of the bike lane and right turn lane on eastbound West Grand Boulevard (directly in front of the building).
  • The closure of the far-right lane on the southbound Lodge Service Drive between West Grand Boulevard and the M-10 entrance ramp (on the side of the building).
  • Some public street parking and sidewalks in this small footprint may also be impacted.

The fencing and road closures will be in effect while the area remains an active construction site. Detour signs and other directional signage is posted to help navigate around the construction site. Please take this into consideration when traveling to or near Henry Ford Hospital.

Henry Ford Health + Michigan State University Health Sciences Research Center Progress

Construction is underway for the future Henry Ford Health + Michigan State University Health Sciences Research Center, located in a portion of a parking lot on Third Street just across the street from Henry Ford’s headquarters. Fencing and fence covers to minimize dust were installed the week of May 20. Crews will begin drilling the building foundations and removing soil on June 3. They will be installing steel rods and filling them with concrete through the summer.

We anticipate increased truck traffic and construction-related noise continuing through the summer of 2026. Given current road construction and limited available roads to accommodate the size of trucks, we are encouraging trucks to exit off M-10 at Warren and travel north via 2nd Street, then Antoinette to reach the site.

We encourage you give yourself plenty of time when planning the visits. We appreciate your patience and support.
