The Road Commission for Oakland County (RCOC) plans to close Napier Road between 9 Mile and 10 Mile roads on the Lyon Township/Novi border beginning April 9 in order to pave the gravel road.
The Napier/10 Mile Road roundabout will remain open to traffic during the Napier closure; however, the approaches on the south side of roundabout will be closed to through traffic (the north, east and west approaches and the full roundabout will remain open).
The detour for Napier Road through traffic will be 8 Mile Rd to Beck Road to 10 Mile Road and vice versa. Residential access along Napier Road will be maintained.
Construction of the Napier/10 Mile roundabout, completed in 2017, was the first phase of the project. The combined $6.3 million project (including the roundabout and gravel road paving) is funded with a mix of federal and local dollars. Local funding is shared by RCOC, Lyon Township and the City of Novi.
This section of Napier Road carries approximately 2,350 vehicles daily and is expected to reopen to traffic in mid-July.
