Canadian National (CN) railroad will close Scott Lake Road just south of Dixie Highway (between Winton Road and McCormick Drive) in Waterford Township to through traffic beginning Feb. 9, for railroad crossing work.
The detour for traffic is Watkins Lake Road to Dixie Highway, back to Scott Lake Road and vice versa.
CN is expected to conclude the repair work on Feb. 16; however, some of the work is weather-dependent and the road could be closed longer. The work is being done under a permit issued by the Road Commission for Oakland County.
Scott Lake Road carries approximately 7,900 vehicles daily.
