QUARTERLY CONSTRUCTION PROJECTS
November 2022 - February 2023
1. MAJOR ROAD OVERLAY – 14 MILE, I75 TO DEQUINDRE
The City of Troy, in cooperation with the Road Commission for Oakland County (RCOC) and the City of Madison Heights are rehabilitating 14 Mile Road, from I75 to Dequindre. This project includes milling (grinding off) the existing pavement and placing a new asphalt pavement surface; modernizing the traffic signals; upgrading pedestrian crossings to comply with American’s with Disabilities Act (ADA) requirements; and improving drainage where necessary. Consumers Energy will close eastbound 14 Mile, from east of I75 to John R through the end of November 2022 for gas main relocation work. Westbound 14 Mile will remain open to traffic during the gas main relocation work. Traffic signal foundation work will follow Consumers Energy work in early winter 2022. Road work is not anticipated to start until the spring of 2023.
2. STEPHENSON HIGHWAY WATER MAIN REPLACEMENT
The existing water main on the east side of Stephenson Highway, from Fourteen Mile Road to Maple Road, has exceeded its service life. This project will replace and upsize this main to upgrade the water and fire protection in this office area, while eliminating costly water main breaks that are more common with older water mains. Construction started in September and be substantially complete by the end of December. Pavement repairs, restoration and final project cleanup will take place in the spring of 2023.
