Square Lake rebuilt between Woodward and I-75

The Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT) has begun a $15 million project in Bloomfield Township rebuilding Square Lake Road between I-75 and Woodward Avenue.

That part of Square Lake is considered by MDOT to be a business loop of I-75. The project will include rebuilding the Square Lake Road pavement, drainage improvements, new curb and gutter, signal upgrades, and improving the Opdyke Road/Square Lake Road ramps.

Work began April 15, and is expected to be completed by the end of the year. The work will be performed in two stages and has begun with closing westbound Square Lake Road from I-75 to Woodward Avenue. Once that work is completed in mid-summer, then eastbound Square Lake Road will be closed from Woodward Avenue to I-75.

Westbound traffic will be detoured further northbound on I-75 to westbound M-59, then further west through the Woodward Loop to southbound I-75 BL/US-24 BR/Woodward Avenue to westbound US-24 BR/Square Lake Road.

By closing each direction completely, the work can be completed more efficiently, MDOT said, which reduces the length of time the project will take to complete, and also create a safer work zone for both drivers and construction workers. The rebuilt pavement and updated traffic signals will increase the long-term safety of the corridor for the motoring public.
