13 Mile Road Rehabilitation, Drake to Farmington
Currently, local access is being maintained in the westbound direction only. The next stage of construction has been rescheduled to begin May 25 and will require moving traffic to the south side of 13 Mile Road. To accommodate this upcoming work, traffic and local access will be maintained in the eastbound direction only starting May 25. Access into the construction zone will be maintained only from Drake Road and all traffic will exit the construction zone via Farmington Road. A detour route has been posted. This project is scheduled to be substantially completed and open to traffic by September 1.
Drake Road Rehabilitation, Grand River to 11 Mile Road
This paving project is underway. Drake Road will remain open during construction; however, it will be reduced to one lane with flag control during daytime hours as necessary.
9 Mile Road and Halsted Road Intersection
This project includes the improvement and modernization of the traffic signals, as well as pavement reconstruction with the addition of right turn lanes on all approaches of the intersection. This work will require a complete closure of the 9 Mile and Halsted intersection scheduled to start May 29. A detour route for 9 Mile Road as well as Halsted Road will be posted.
Middlebelt Road, 10 Mile Road to 14 Mile Road
According to the Road Commission for Oakland County and Consumers Energy, this gas line maintenance and replacement project is scheduled to continue into the fall. Work will be completed with shoulder closures, lane closures, and under flag control for much of the project; however, a full closure of Middlebelt Road over I-696 will be required to complete the work. This closure is expected to take place no earlier than June 15 (after school lets out for summer vacation) and continue for approximately eight weeks.
8 Mile Road Concrete Repair Project, East of Halsted Road to Farmington Road
This Wayne County concrete repair project is underway. According to Wayne County, this 1.2 mile stretch of road work is a continuation of the 2016 project that ran short on funds before all work was completed. A significant amount of the repair work is concentrated on the shared center left turn lane. Work is expected to take place under lane closures; however, one lane of traffic will be maintained in each direction. The entire project is scheduled to be completed by July 1.
