LIVONIA, Mich. (AP) - Officials will let residents walk, run, bike or skateboard down a reconstructed Detroit-area freeway before cars are allowed to hit the road.

The Michigan Department of Transportation is marking near-completion of the project to rebuild part of Interstate 96 with an event Sunday. From 2 p.m. to 4 p.m., people will be able to park at Madonna University in Livonia and get on part of the freeway.

A posting on the project’s website says the event is on westbound I-96 from Stark Road to Newburgh Road.

A several stretch of Interstate 96 in Livonia and Wayne County’s Redford Township was shut in April. The $148 million project to rebuild the roadway also includes bridge repair and replacement work. Details are posted on a website for the project.
