Gallery 8: I-75 Construction  [page 1]

The following photos were taken during January of 2002 before the two-year reconstruction project began showing the need for repair.

Approach signs on Southfield Rd. about 1/4 mile East of I-75. They've only been up for about a year. Before that, there were only JCT I-75 shields just before the interchange

The southern terminus of M-39 at Lafayette St. (just East of I-75)
