Square Lake Rd Project In Oakland Co To Begin In Spring 2024

Metro Detroit Traffic NewsBloomfield Twp./Pontiac, MI - The Michigan Department of Transportation will be investing $15 million to rebuild the section of the I-75 Business Loop (BL) (Square Lake Road) between I-75 and M-1 (Woodward Avenue).

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 is expected to begin this spring and be completed by the end of the year.

The work will be performed in two stages and will begin with closing westbound I-75 BL (Square Lake Road) from I-75 to M-1 (Woodward Avenue). Once that work is completed in mid-summer, then eastbound I-75 BL (Square Lake Road) will be closed from M-1 (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/M-1 (Woodward Avenue) to westbound US-24 BR/Square Lake Road.

Based on economic modeling, this investment is expected to directly and indirectly support 213 jobs.

By closing each direction completely, the work can be completed more efficiently, 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.
