14 Mile Road Closed Between Telegraph and Lahser

Consumers Energy has closed 14 Mile between Telegraph and Lahser on the Bingham Farms/Bloomfield Township border for an emergency gas line repair. The repair is expected to be completed by the end of November.  

MDOT Reconstruction Work on Telegraph Road Underway

NB and SB Telegraph between Square Lake Road and Orchard Lake Road and the on-ramp from Orchard Lake Road to Telegraph Road are now open to traffic. 

Restoration and irrigation repairs in Segment 1 will be completed in the Spring of 2019. 

The contractor is working on Segment 2, NB and SB Telegraph from Long Lake Road to Square Lake Road. There will be lane closures in both the northbound and southbound lanes, which can cause delays in travel as the contractor performs pavement conditioning as the weather allows. Milling and paving of Segment 2 has been postponed until spring 2019.Progress will be limited by weather and the schedule may change slightly.
The remaining work in Segment 3, completing the concrete milling and asphalt overlay through the intersection, will be completed spring 2019 in addition to the restoration and irrigation repairs.      
The Telegraph Road reconstruction project consists of concrete milling, HMA overlay, joint and crack repair, curb and gutter repair, drainage structure repair, and pavement markings. The project will be in the following three areas:
SB US-24 from Orchard Lake Road to Square Lake Road
NB and SB US-24 from Long Lake Road to Square Lake Road
NB and SB US-24 at the Maple Road intersection

The work is being performed in three segments. More information can be found by visiting the MDOT Newsroom. In summary, the following is a general schedule of the project:

Segment 1:Southbound US-24 from Orchard Lake Road to Square Lake Road. This segment is complete excluding the on-ramp from Orchard Lake Road to Telegraph Road. 

Segment 2: Northbound and Southbound US-24 from Long Lake Road to Square Lake Road. 

Segment 3: Northbound and Southbound US-24 approaching the Maple Road intersection. 

The MDOT Mi Drive Map can be used to identify the location of construction and details of the work. Viewers can turn on different layers that show construction information, incidents, or snow plowing.
MDOT will be allowing the contractor to maintain double lane closures continuously on Telegraph Road during the project.  Triple lane closures will occur on weekend nights and paving will be performed both during weeknight and weekend closures. 
In addition, due to the road construction, the safety path crossings at Telegraph & Hickory Grove Roads, Telegraph & Long Lake Roads, and Telegraph and Maple Roads will be temporarily closed.

RCOC to Resurface South Boulevard & Adams Road

RCOC will be resurfacing Adams Road, as well as making drainage improvements, shoulder widening, and traffic signal updates between Square Lake Road and South Boulevard. Two way traffic will be maintained from the project start to August 8.  From August 8 through the project completion in October, only one lane for northbound traffic will be maintained. 
The detour route for southbound traffic will be South Boulevard to Squirrel Road to Square Lake Road and back to Adams Road.

MDOT I-75 Modernization Project


I-75 is getting a new look from M-59 to Eight Mile Road. The $840 million project is being constructed by the Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT) to meet current safety and FHWA standards. Beginning with the Bloomfield Township segment from Square Lake Road to South Boulevard, major reconstruction began August 15th and includes: rebuilding the road way, switching on and off ramps from the left side to the right side of the roadway at the Square Lake Road interchange, replacing the bridges at Adams, Squirrel, and Square Lake Roads, adding an interior lane for high occupancy vehicles (HOV), evaluating the need for an additional carpool lot, upgrading the existing Adams Road carpool lot, improving drainage, and when possible, connecting the safety path segments in the Township. A comprehensive plan for the 18 mile corridor will be pulled together with design guidelines that address aesthetic elements, such as decorative brickwork, attractive railing, and landscaping.
