The Road Commission for Oakland County (RCOC) expects to close the north half of the Halsted Road intersection at Maple Road in West Bloomfield Township on April 30 for intersection improvement work that is part of the ongoing Maple Road project between Drake to Halsted roads.
Separate detours have been set up for traffic that utilizes northbound and southbound Halsted Road north of Maple Road.
The detour for southbound Halsted Road traffic is westbound Walnut Lake Road to southbound Haggerty Road to eastbound Maple Road and back to Halsted Road.
The detour for northbound Halsted Road is eastbound Maple Road to northbound Drake Road to westbound Walnut Lake Road and back to Halsted Road.
The closure is expected to last approximately 14 days and should reopen mid-May.
Once the north half of the intersection is complete, Dan’s Excavating, the contractor for the Maple Road project, is expected to close the south half of the Halsted Road intersection at Maple Road.
The Maple Road project between Drake and Halsted roads involves major resurfacing, widening to three lanes and drainage improvements.
