12 MILE ROAD RECONSTRUCTION, FROM LAHSER TO EVERGREEN IN SOUTHFIELD, SET TO BEGIN MAY 24

The Road Commission for Oakland County (RCOC), in partnership with the City of Southfield, expects to begin reconstruction of 12 Mile Road, from Lahser Road to Evergreen Road in Southfield, on Monday, May 24.
Beginning approximately June 1, one lane in each direction will remain open throughout the project. Access to all homes and businesses along the road will be maintained at all times. The project is expected to be completed in late October.
The approximately $5.7 million project is funded by RCOC, the City of Southfield and Oakland County general government (through the Tri-Party Program).
The 1.22-mile project includes:
• Pavement removal
• Repaving with asphalt
• Concrete slab replacement in select areas
• Right-turn lanes added at several locations
• Concrete curb and gutter replacement
• Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA)-compliant upgrades to pedestrian crosswalks
• Improved drainage including storm-sewer replacement
• Traffic-signal upgrades
• Watermain installation (work done by the City of Southfield)
The contractor for the project is M.L. Chartier Excavating of Fair Haven, MI.
This section of 12 Mile Road carries approximately 20,500 vehicles per day. For more information on the 12 Mile Road project, visit: http://rcocweb.org/587/12-Mile-Road-Lahser-to-Evergreen-Road.
