The Road Commission for Oakland County (RCOC) is expecting to close the south portion of Drake Road at the 12 Mile Road intersection for concrete replacement beginning Wednesday, Sept. 27. The closure is part of the ongoing 12 Mile Road pavement repair work in Farmington Hills.
The detour for the closure is 11 Mile Road to Halsted Road to 12 Mile Road, back to Drake Road and vice versa.
The closure is expected to last approximately 19 days and the intersection should fully reopen mid- October.
The $2.6 million project began on August 14. The project includes replacing bad sections of concrete on 12 Mile Road between Haggerty and Farmington roads. The entire project is expected to be complete in mid-November.
