14 Mile To Be Resurfaced from Campbell to Stephenson Highway
The contractor for the Road Commission for Oakland County (RCOC) is expected to begin the resurfacing of 14 Mile Road from Campbell to east of Stephenson Highway on the Madison Heights/Troy border on Monday, July 16.
During the project, this section of 14 Mile Road will remain open to traffic, but will be reduced to one lane in each direction. Access to all homes and businesses will be maintained at all times.
However, Campbell Road will be closed at the south side of the 14 Mile intersection for a period of up to 15 days during the project, though that closure has not yet been scheduled. Additionally, Sheffield Drive will be closed on the north side of 14 Mile for the duration of the project.
The project is expected to be completed by Oct. 1.
The project will involve applying five inches of new concrete on top of the existing asphalt road. Where needed, the existing road will be completely removed and replaced with concrete.
The project also will include upgraded traffic signals, and the pedestrian crosswalks within the project will be upgraded to meet current Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) requirements.
The project is expected to cost approximately $1.3 million. The project will be partially funded through an approximately $864,000 federal grant. The remainder of the cost will be shared between RCOC and the City of Troy.
The work will be performed by Florence Cement of Shelby Township.
