Seven Mile Road at Newburgh Road Intersection Repairs
Work on the Seven Mile and Newburgh Roads intersection begins Thursday, June 1 and is expected to run through Friday, July 14. Expect delays. Please use caution while driving through the construction zone.
You may wish to seek alternate routes. Suggested alternate routes:
    Six Mile or Eight Mile Road to gain access to I-275
    Farmington Road instead of Newburgh Road to obtain access to I-275 at Six Mile or Eight Mile

The road improvements are being made by the Wayne County Department of Public Service.

Stark Road from Schoolcraft to the Railroad Tracks Water Main Work
Stark Road (Schoolcraft to the railroad tracks) is under water main work in the southbound lanes and currently down to one lane in each direction just north of the railroad tracks. The water main work is anticipated for a two-week period in front of the proposed Aristeo Headquarters at 12882 Stark Road.  Water main work is anticipated to be completed by late May (weather permitting).

There will be forthcoming concrete repairs involving selective slabs by Great Lakes Contracting Solutions, LLC after the water main work is completed in early June between Industrial Road and Rosati Avenue with continued lane closures.  Anticipate one lane in each direction for the month of June.

Merriman Road from Six Mile to Puritan Concrete Repairs
Merriman Road (Six Mile to Puritan) is down to one lane as the southbound curbed lanes are having concrete repairs at the joints by Wayne County DPS Maintenance Crews. Anticipate completion by early June (weather permitting).

We appreciate your patience during this time.  Please contact the Engineering Department at (734) 466-2571 with any questions on the construction activity.
