The Road Commission for Oakland County, in partnership with the City of Farmington Hills, will begin the project to resurface and partially reconstruct Orchard Lake Road, from 13 Mile Road to 14 Mile Road, during the week of March 21.
Once the project starts, this section of Orchard Lake Road will be open for southbound traffic but will be closed for northbound traffic. During most of the project, two southbound lanes will remain open, but there will be times when southbound is reduced to one lane. The detour route for northbound traffic will be 13 Mile Road to Northwestern Highway and back to Orchard Lake Road.

The project construction cost is expected to be $7.3 million. It will be paid for with a combination of federal road dollars and funding from RCOC, Farmington Hills and Oakland County general government (through the Tri-Party Program).
The project is expected to be completed in November. The contractor for the project is M.L. Chartier of Ida, MI.
