The Road Commission for Oakland County (RCOC) will close 11 Mile Road over the Blackwood Drain just east of Milford Road in Lyon Township for a culvert replacement project beginning Tuesday, July 26.
The detour for the closure will be Milford Road to 12 Mile Road to South Hill Road, back to 11 Mile Road and vice versa.
The $691,000 project is mostly funded by the RCOC. The project includes:
• Culvert replacement
• New guardrails
• Sanitary sewer relocation (funded by Lyon Township)
The contractor for the project is Dan’s Excavating of Shelby Township. The project is expected to conclude approximately early-September. This section of 11Mile Road carries approximately 400 vehicles daily.
