Telegraph Rd And 7 Mile Rd Closures In Detroit Announced

Detroit, MI - The relocation of a water main near the US-24 (Telegraph Road)/7 Mile Road intersection in Detroit requires closing the 7 Mile Road through-lanes and multiple lanes on US-24 for approximately two weeks.

Beginning 7 a.m. Thursday, Aug. 10, northbound and southbound US-24 (Telegraph Road) will be reduced to one lane each approaching 7 Mile Road. Eastbound and westbound 7 Mile Road will be blocked at US-24 with traffic having to turn right to use the northbound and southbound US-24 turnarounds to reach the other side of 7 Mile Road. This water main work is expected to be completed by the end of August.

The Michigan Department of Transportation is investing $54 million to rebuild 1.4 miles of US-24 (Telegraph Road) between M-5 (Grand River Avenue) to north of M-102 (8 Mile Road). This two-year project includes rebuilding US-24, improving five bridges, drainage and water main relocation work, sidewalk ramp improvements that are compliant with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), sign replacements, and traffic signal and lighting relocations from the M-5 (Grand River Avenue) intersection to the M-102 (8 Mile Road) area where a diverging diamond interchange will be built to improve efficiency and enhance safety. Based on economic modeling, this investment is expected to directly and indirectly support 653 jobs.
