13 Mile Road Rehabilitation, Drake to Farmington
Currently, local access is being maintained in the westbound direction only. The eastbound lanes of 13 Mile Road between Drake and Farmington are completely closed. Access into the construction zone is currently maintained only from Farmington Road and all traffic exits the construction zone via Drake Road. A detour route has been posted. There will be a weekend closure of the 13 Mile Road and Drake Road intersection to accommodate paving. This one time closure is tentatively scheduled to begin at 7 p.m. on Friday, September 28 and reopen prior to 7 a.m. on Monday, October 1. When the intersection work is finished, this project will be nearly complete and will open to traffic shortly thereafter.
9 Mile Road and Halsted Road Intersection
This project is substantially complete and open to traffic. Due to a delay in delivery/manufacture of traffic signal poles, there will be a short daytime closure to complete the installation of the traffic signal later this fall. Updates will be forthcoming as information becomes available.
Halsted Road, South of 14 Mile Road
Halsted Road is scheduled to close to traffic on Monday, September 24. This project includes road reconstruction as well as drainage improvements to reduce the number of closures on Halsted Road due to flooding. Work is expected to continue into late fall. A detour route will be posted as well as advanced warning signs.

I-696 in Oakland County
This maintenance work includes concrete repair, joint repair, and flood mitigation efforts by the Michigan Department of Transportation. Nightly lane closures will be required for overnight work from 9 p.m. to 5 a.m., Monday through Thursday. There are three full weekend closures that still need to be scheduled for the eastbound I-696 portion located in Oakland County. Closures will start at 9 p.m. Friday and I-696 will reopen at 5 a.m. Monday morning. One of the closures will be for eastbound traffic from Telegraph to I-75 and the other two closures will be for eastbound traffic from I-275 to Telegraph Road. There are no remaining full closures of I-696 required for the westbound side of the freeway. There will continue to be nightly lane closures for both directions of I-696 until all work is completed.
Please note that this work is currently on hold due to the ongoing labor dispute.
