Consumers Energy will keep Greenfield Road closed to through traffic from 13 Mile Road to 14 Mile Road on the Royal Oak/Beverly Hills border for gas main replacement work until late August.
Consumers had previously expected to reopen the road in late July; however, the delays are due to numerous utility conflicts and delays in receiving necessary pipes to complete the work.
Northbound Greenfield Road remains open for local traffic only with access to homes and businesses maintained. Southbound Greenfield Road will remain closed.
The detour for through traffic is 13 Mile Road to Southfield Road to 14 Mile Road, back to Greenfield Road and vice versa.
The work is being done under a permit issued by the Road Commission for Oakland County (RCOC). This section of Greenfield Road carries approximately 17,860 vehicles per day.
