The Road Commission for Oakland County (RCOC) expects to close Greenfield Road, 10 Mile Road to 9 Mile Road in Southfield for concrete repairs from Monday, Aug. 14, through late September.
During the closure, business access will be maintained, and northbound Greenfield Road will remain open to traffic.
The detour route for southbound Greenfield Road is 10 Mile Road to Southfield Road to 9 Mile Road, and back to Greenfield Road.
Cipparrone Contracting Inc. of Southfield is doing the work. This section of southbound Greenfield Road carries approximately 18,400 vehicles daily.
Once the new concrete is poured, it must cure and cannot be driven on while it is curing. During the curing phase, no workers will be present, and the road may appear complete, but it can only be opened to traffic once the concrete is finished curing and gains the necessary strength to support the traffic.
