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. 

The contractor will begin working on Segment 2, NB and SB Telegraph from Long Lake Road to Square Lake Road the week of November 12, 2018. There will be lane closures in both the northbound and southbound lanes, which can cause delays in travel. Dual lane closures will take place alternating between the northbound and southbound lanes to allow the contractor to work.
The right two lanes, both northbound and southbound Telegraph, will remain closed through the next week just north and just south of Maple Road. In addition, westbound Maple Road lane closures will take place through the weekend. Drivers should expect significant delays.      
Progress in both areas will be limited by weather and the schedule may change slightly.

All drive lanes will be open for the Thanksgiving holiday.

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. The project is expected to begin mid-to-late July through October. 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. 
In addition, the RCOC will be resurfacing South Boulevard from Coolidge to Crooks and partially reconstructing and resurfacing South Boulevard from Adams to Coolidge Roads. Resurfacing started in June, with traffic remaining open.  After July 4 South Boulevard will be completely closed for culvert repair just west of Coolidge. The detour is Crooks Road to Square Lake Road to Squirrel Road, back to South Boulevard.  After the culvert is replaced, South Boulevard will be open for westbound traffic only. 
In both projects, access for homes, businesses and side streets will be maintained.

MDOT I-75 Modernization Project

I-75 Modernization Project – Segment 1 Resumes May 15

May 8, 2017

During the 2017 construction phase, two-way traffic will be sharing the northbound lanes of I-75, with two lanes open in each direction, to allow for the reconstruction of southbound I-75, along with bridge replacements where southbound I-75 crosses over Adams and Square Lake Roads. Once the traffic shift is implemented, traffic will be prohibited from using the eastbound Square Lake Road entrance ramp to northbound I-75. Traffic will be directed to M-59 to access northbound I-75.

Other ramp closures include the northbound I-75 exit to westbound Square Lake Road, the eastbound M-59 ramp to southbound I-75, and the southbound I-75 ramps to and from Adams Road. Detours will be posted for all ramp closures.

I-75 Modernization Construction Segment Map

MDOT 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.
