2023 Construction Projects Map
Farmington Road Rehabilitation Project (12 Mile Road to 13 Mile Road)
During Phase I of this project, local access is being maintained in the southbound direction only from 13 Mile Road to 12 Mile Road to facilitate construction operations. Farmington Road is completely closed to northbound traffic between 12 Mile Road and 13 Mile Road. A detour route has been posted for northbound traffic as well as southbound through traffic that utilizes 12 Mile Road, Orchard Lake Road, and 13 Mile Road. This project is scheduled to be substantially complete and open to traffic in September. Updates will be forthcoming as information becomes available.
14 Mile Road Rehabilitation Project (Drake Road to Farmington Road)
14 Mile Road will remain closed between Drake Road and Farmington Road for the duration of this project. A detour route has been posted that utilizes Drake Road, Maple Road, and Farmington Road for both eastbound and westbound traffic. Local access to the Legacy of Farmington Hills neighborhood, which includes Harmony Lane and Heirloom Circle, is being maintained from the Farmington side of the work zone, but the road will be closed to all traffic west of Harmony Lane. The few residential homes on 14 Mile Road will have access through local streets. Work is expected to be substantially complete by August.
I-696 (I-275 to Lahser Road)
This $275 million project includes rebuilding the roadway from the base up, including storm sewer replacement work, overpass rehabilitation and rebuilding ramps at Orchard Lake Road, American Drive, Franklin Road, M-10 (Northwestern Highway), and US-24 (Telegraph Road). During 2023, eastbound I-696 will be rebuilt from I-275 to Evergreen Road. Westbound lanes will be rebuilt in 2024.
Drake Road under I-696 is now open to traffic. Farmington Road over I-696 is closed for approximately the next 2 weeks for maintenance work. Inkster Road is currently closed under I-696 for approximately 2 weeks. Maintenance work on the Orchard Lake overpass continues to progress and all lanes are expected to be open to traffic in the near future.
