Road Commission for Oakland County Construction Updates
John R Widening, Long Lake to South Blvd.
QUARTERLY CONSTRUCTION PROJECTS
August 2019 - November 2019
1. INTERSTATE RECONSTRUCTION – I-75, 13 MILE TO COOLIDGE
The I-75 Modernization Project, from north of 13 Mile to north of Coolidge Highway will widen and reconstruct the freeway pavement, interchanges and bridges. The project includes the addition of one lane in each direction by enclosing the median; drainage and aesthetic improvements; and noise walls where they meet Federal/State criteria. All traffic (2 lanes in each direction) has been shifted to the southbound side to allow for work on the northbound side. In late fall 2019, northbound and southbound traffic will be moved to their respective sides for the 2019/20 winter months. Starting in the spring of 2020, all traffic will be moved to the northbound side and work will start on the southbound bridges, ramps and mainline pavement. All lanes of I-75, from 13 Mile to Coolidge, are anticipated to be complete and open to traffic in late fall 2020. Follow I-75 modernization progress on the web at: www.modernize75.com.
2. MAJOR ROAD WIDENING AND RECONSTRUCTION – JOHN R, LONG LAKE TO SOUTH BOULEVARD
John R will be widened and reconstructed to a new 3-lane asphalt pavement with deceleration lanes at side streets between Long Lake and South Boulevard. One lane of traffic is being maintained for northbound only traffic until the entire road is complete and open to traffic in late November 2019. Restoration and final project cleanup will take place, as necessary, in the spring and summer of 2020.
3. WATER REDUNDANCY/RELIABILITY – PRV FACILITY – SOUTH BOULEVARD AT BEACH
A new Pressure Reducing Valve (PRV) facility will be constructed on city-owned property at the Southeast corner of South Boulevard and Beach and connected to an existing Great Lakes Water Authority (GLWA) water meter pit. This connection will provide a needed redundant feed and allow the city the ability to supply water and limit disruptions in the northwest section of the city. Northbound Beach Road will be closed to through traffic for several weeks during Phase I of the project, but will be open during all other phases. Work is anticipated to start in July and be complete in the fall of 2019.
4. MAJOR ROAD CONCRETE SLAB REPLACEMENT – DEQUINDRE, 14 MILE TO LONG LAKE
This a joint project with the Road Commission for Oakland County (RCOC) that will remove and replace select areas of concrete pavement on Dequindre, between 14 Mile and Long Lake. The work is part of a larger County-wide concrete pavement replacement program administered by the RCOC. Work started
in June and is anticipated to be complete in August 2019.
5. INDUSTRIAL ROAD PAVEMENT REPLACEMENT – NORTHFIELD PKWY, BRENTWOOD TO WHITFIELD
Northfield Parkway, from north of Brentwood to north of Whitfeld will be removed and replaced with new concrete pavement. Work started at the end of June and is anticipated to be complete by the end of August.
6. INDUSTRIAL ROAD CONCRETE SLAB REPLACEMENT – TOWER, CROOKS TO LONG LAKE
Select areas of concrete pavement will be removed and replaced on Tower, between Crooks and Long Lake. Work is
anticipated to start in the fall of 2019, depending on the contractor’s workload and progress on other projects.
7. MAINTENANCE OVERLAY – ADAMS, SOUTH OF BIG BEAVER TO LONG LAKE
This is a joint project with the Road Commission for Oakland County (RCOC) that will overlay the existing pavement on Adams, from south of Big Beaver to Long Lake. The work is part of a larger County-wide asphalt pavement maintenance overlay program administered by the RCOC and it is anticipated that work will be active during the summer of 2019.
8. LOCAL ROAD OVERLAY – SECTION 30
The following roads in Section 30 are scheduled to receive an asphalt pavement overlay: Wrenwood, Brooklawn, Norwich, Witherbee, Graefield, Eton, Derby, St. Andrews and Engle, Nampa and Brooklawn Courts. This project includes milling (grinding off) select areas of the existing pavement and placing a new asphalt pavement surface. Work is anticipated to start in late July and be substantially complete by Labor Day. This project will be coordinated with the sanitary sewer cured in place pipe project that will also be active in this area.
9. SANITARY SEWER CURED IN PLACE PIPE (CIPP) – SECTION 30
The existing sanitary sewers on Eton, Witherbee, Brooklawn, Norwich, Brooklawn Court and Graefield will be rehabilitated and restored using a trenchless process called Cured in Place Pipe (CIPP) lining. CIPP lining uses a textile liner, liquid resin and a curing agent to harden and create a new fitted, smooth and corrosion-resistant pipe wall inside the existing sewer. Work is anticipated to begin in July and be complete by Labor Day. This project will be coordinated with the local road overlay project that will also be active in this area.
10. WATERMAIN CURED IN PLACE PIPE (CIPP) – SQUARE LAKE PLACE SUBDIVISION
The existing water mains in the Square Lake Place Subdivision (i.e. Saxony, Normandy, Dryden, Tuscany, Smithfield, Brittany Tree and Silverstone) will be rehabilitated and restored using a trenchless process called Cured in Place Pipe (CIPP) lining. CIPP lining uses a textile liner, liquid resin and a curing agent to harden and create a new fitted, smooth and corrosion-resistant pipe wall inside the existing water main. Temporary water service will be required and the contractor and Troy Water Department will need to enter homes to temporarily disconnect the existing water meter to avoid back flow into the system while the work takes place. Notice will be provided prior to water service Interruption. Work is anticipated to begin after Labor Day and be substantially complete by the end of October.
*** LOCAL ROAD CONCRETE PAVEMENT REPLACEMENT
The Department of Public Works (DPW) will be replacing concrete pavement at scattered locations on local subdivision roads throughout the City. Specific locations are not shown on the map. Additional information is available at: www.troymi.gov/streetsprojects.
