The Road Commission for Oakland County (RCOC) has issued a permit allowing Pulte Homes to close Nine Mile Road from Griswold Road to Briar Meadow Road, west of Currie Road, in Lyon Township to through traffic from April 14 through approximately July 29.
The closure is necessary for the paving a slightly more than a half-mile of gravel-road paving by developer Pulte Homes in conjunction with private development. Work also includes a hill cut to improve sight distance for motorists.
Access to homes and businesses within the closed section of Nine Mile will be maintained throughout the closure. The road will be completely closed just west of the Cattails Golf Club entrance for the hill cut, and traffic going to homes and businesses east of the closure will have to access the homes and businesses from the east.
The detour for Nine Mile through traffic is Griswold Road to Ten Mile Road to Currie Road, back to Nine Mile Road and vice versa.
This section of Nine Mile Road carries approximately 700 vehicles daily.
