Shelby Township 2014 Road Projects --24 MILE ROAD UPDATE--


The project to install a 42-inch diameter water main under 24 Mile Road from Dequindre to Romeo Plank roads with a full reconstruction of both lanes of traffic has begun in Shelby and Macomb Townships.


Ric-Man Construction Inc.'s jack and bore operation for the installation of a 42-inch water main under the westbound lane of 24 Mile Road that closed portions of 24 Mile Road between Van Dyke Avenue and Mound Road is tentatively slated for completion by Dec. 24.


Ric-Man's goal for the segment between Van Dyke Ave. and Mound Road is to have that section of 24 mile Road opened in an eastbound-only configuration by Dec. 24 to eliminate as much confusion and disruption as possible during the holiday. Crews are scheduled to work though the holiday between Christmas and New Years and will work to minimize disruptions during this time.
