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.

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.
