RCOC TO BEGIN PHASE 2 CONSTRUCTION OF MAPLE RD FROM DRAKE TO HALSTED APPROXIMATELY APR. 9; DETOURS

Detourahead

The Road Commission for Oakland County (RCOC) expects to begin the widening and resurfacing of Maple Road from Drake Road to Halsted Road in West Bloomfield Township approximately April 2 April 9.  Project start is weather-dependent and could change.

 Contractor Dan’s Excavating, of Shelby Township, will close Maple Road for westbound through traffic on approximately Monday, April 9. The detour for westbound traffic is Hagerty Road to 14 Mile Road to Drake Road, back to Maple Road and vice versa.  Eastbound Maple Road will remain open to through traffic.

 Throughout the project, two-way traffic will be maintained on Maple Road from Drake Road to Ring Road for Henry Ford Hospital access. Additionally, business and residential access will be maintained throughout the project.  

As part of the project, Halsted Road will close both north and south of Maple Road for intersection improvements and paving. The north leg will close first for two weeks, and the south leg will close after the north leg is complete.   The dates for the closures are pending and will be announced.            

The first phase of the project – Maple Road from Haggerty to Halsted—was completed in 2018.

The approximately $5.5 million project is funded with a mix of federal and local dollars. Local funding is shared by RCOC and West Bloomfield Township. 

            The project includes:

  • Rehabilitation and resurfacing of Maple Road from Halsted Road to Drake RoadAddition of a continuous center left-turn lane
  • Right-turn-lane extensions in several areas
  • Paved-shoulder widenings
  • Improved drainage
  • Curb and gutter installation
  • Culvert wing walls replacement
  • Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) compliant pedestrian crosswalks

Maple Road carries approximately 23,000 vehicles daily and is expected to fully reopen to traffic in late July.
