City Of Farmington Hills Major Road Projects
11 Mile Road (Middlebelt Road to Inkster Road)
This road rehabilitation and drainage project is approximately 50% complete. During the first phase of construction, local access/traffic has been maintained in the westbound direction only from Inkster Road to Middlebelt Road to facilitate construction on the south side of 11 Mile Road. Starting Monday July 26, 2021, traffic will be shifted to the south side of 11 Mile Road to accommodate construction on the north side. As such, local access/traffic will be maintained in the eastbound direction only from Middlebelt Road to Inkster Road. The existing detour route will be updated to reflect local access in the eastbound direction only and to route westbound traffic around the project. This project is scheduled to be completely open to traffic in September. Updates will be forthcoming as information becomes available.
Consumers Energy Pipeline Project
Middlebelt Road (13 Mile to Maple) and Maple Road (Orchard Lake to Middlebelt)
The Road Commission for Oakland County/MDOT have approved permits allowing Consumers Energy to complete pipeline work on Middlebelt Road and Northwestern Highway. During construction, roads will be open to traffic, but road shoulder closures and lane closures will require flaggers to regulate traffic as necessary. Currently Northwestern Highway is reduced to one travel lane as you approach Middlebelt Road. Motorists should expect delays when traveling these routes. Work is expected to be substantially complete by late August.
Road Commission For Oakland County Projects
Orchard Lake Road (South of 11 Mile Road to I-696)
This work will require lane closures on Orchard Lake Road. One lane in each direction will remain open to traffic during the concrete slab repair work that is expected to be completed by late August. Access to businesses and side streets will be maintained during the work. For more information on the 2021 concrete replacement projects, click here.
