MDOT Reconstruction Work on Telegraph Road Underway
Restoration and irrigation repairs in Segment 1 will be completed in the Spring of 2019.
MDOT is currently working on Segment 2. The two inside lanes of northbound and southbound Telegraph Road between Long Lake and Square Lake Roads will be closed starting the week of May 6, 2019. Pending the weather, MDOT will shift the traffic lane closure from the outside lanes to the inside lanes between Long Lake Road and Square Lake Road on Thursday, May 9, 2019. Every other crossover will be open to traffic, and will be rotated as the work is completed at each cross over. The closure is expected to last until mid-June but is weather dependent.
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 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.

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.
