Grand River Resurfacing In Wayne County Begins Aug 7, 2023

Detroit / Livonia / Redford, MI - The Michigan Department of Transportation is investing $5.9 million to resurface M-5 (Grand River Avenue) between M-102 (8 Mile Road) and Berg Road, east of US-24 (Telegraph Road) in the cities of Detroit, Livonia, and Redford Township.

Beginning 6 a.m. Monday, Aug. 7, M-5 will have the far right lanes closed in each direction between west of Lahser Road and M-102 (8 Mile Road) for sidewalk ramp work and sewer work.

The two-year project includes 3 miles of hot-mix asphalt resurfacing, joint repairs, concrete curb and gutter repairs, storm sewer replacement, and American with Disabilities Act ramp upgrades. While crews will work on sewers and sidewalk ramps this year, the majority of this project will occur next year. This work is being coordinated with the nearby US-24 (Telegraph Road) project between I-96 and M-102 (8 Mile Road). The rebuilding part of the US-24 project will be completed this year and then work will move to the US-24/M-102 (8 Mile Road) interchange. This will avoid overlapping projects at the M-5/US-24 intersection.

Based on economic modeling, this investment is expected to directly and indirectly support about 72 jobs.
