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 is ongoing in Shelby Township.
Per the Macomb County Department of Roads, 24 Mile Road is closed to all through traffic from Seven Oaks Street to Brookfield Street and from Whitby Way to Gaskill Court.
Motorists on Gaskill Court must head east on 24 Mile Road toward Shelby Road. Right turns from Gaskill Court onto 24 Mile Road are prohibited. Motorists on Whitby Way must head west on 24 Mile Road toward Dequindre Road. Right turns from Whitby Way onto 24 Mile Road are prohibited.
Residents and motorists on Brookfield Street must head eastbound on 24 Mile Road toward Shelby Road. Left turns from Brookfield onto 24 Mile Road are prohibited. Residents and motorists on Seven Oaks Street must head west on 24 Mile Road toward Dequindre Road. Right turns from Seven Oaks onto 24 Mile Road are prohibited. The closure started July 22 and will run indefinitely.
The westbound lane of 24 Mile Road remains closed between Mound Road and Van Dyke Ave. The eastbound lane will remain open to local traffic. Detours will be posted and will be in effect until further notice.
An indefinite closure still has both lanes closed between Brentwood Street and Jewell Road. Local traffic will be permitted between Van Dyke Ave. and Brentwood, but motorists will be forced to turn around prior to the closure at the Van Dyke Expressway (M-53) overpass.
Ric-Man Construction issued a chart outlining all planned phases of the project as it relates to the phases' tentative start and end dates. That chart can be found here.
