Lansing, MI - MDOT will resurface 9 miles of M-102 (8 Mile Road) in Oakland, Macomb, and Wayne counties starting March 30, 2020 (weather dependent) with an expected end to the project in late Fall 2020.
The Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT) will invest $15.5 million to repair approximately 9 miles of M-102 (8 Mile Road) between I-75 and I-94 in the cities of Hazel Park in Oakland County, Warren and Eastpointe in Macomb County, and Detroit and Harper Woods in Wayne County. Railroad crossing improvements will be performed near Mound Road and M-97 (Groesbeck Highway).
The project will include various types of work: concrete pavement repairs, asphalt milling and resurfacing, repairing curbs and gutters, sidewalk ramps, and some drainage repairs.
Work will be divided into segments along M-102 (8 Mile Road):
Segment 1 (April to May): Eastbound and westbound M-102 will have three lanes open between Mound Road and M-97, with one lane closed to allow crews to build crossovers near two railroad crossings.
Segment 2 (May to July):
Eastbound and westbound M-102 will have two lanes open between Mound Road and M-97 with traffic shifted across the median at each railroad crossing (between Mt. Elliott Street and Sherwood Street, and between Hoover Road and M-97) and then shifted back. Only one direction will be worked on at a time.
Segment 3 (July to late fall):
Eastbound and westbound M-102 will have multiple lane closures between M-1 (Woodward Avenue) and I-94 for a variety of work, including concrete pavement repairs, milling and resurfacing, repairing curbs and gutters, sidewalk ramps, and some drainage repairs. There will be two weekend closures for the I-75 interchange.
Access will be maintained to all neighborhoods and businesses during construction. MDOT understands the impact this type of major work has on motorists and works as quickly and as safely as possible to get the job done while keeping drivers and workers safe. This maintenance work will improve safety and provide a smoother driving surface.
These road and railroad repairs will provide a smoother driving surface and will extend the life of the roadway.
