(WXYZ) - With spring coming into full effect, it ushers in another season of construction. Several construction projects are scheduled to start around Metro Detroit on Monday, April 16.
In Macomb County, a two mile stretch of the east and westbound service drives along I-696 will be resurfaced. The span is between Gratiot Ave and Groesbeck Highway in the cities of Roseville and Eastpointe. There will be single lane restrictions seven days a week, from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. on weekdays, and from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. on weekends. Work is expected to be complete by late July.
In Oakland County, Commerce Road in Commerce Township is also scheduled to be reconstructed between Carroll Lake and Union Lake roads. In addition to resurfacing, there will also be upgrades performed to the drainage and traffic systems. The road will be closed sometime during the project, but that date has not yet been determined. Work should be wrapped up by September 1st.
In Wayne County, work will begin on 34 bridges I-275 between Hannan Road in Van Buren Township and 6 Mile Road near Northville Township. This project will require freeway lane closures and restrictions on the use of overpasses. Traffic will be shifted to accommodate heavy traffic loads at peak travel times, but additional lanes will be closed during off hours.
Also in Wayne County, two miles of Plymouth Road (Old M-14) will be resurfaced between Market Street and Farmington Road. One lane will be open in each direction, and paving operations will be restricted to overnights to keep interference between commuters and construction equipment at a minimum.
