Two-year project on US-24 (Telegraph Road) from M-5 (Grand River Avenue) to M-102 (8 Mile Road) begins in Wayne County
February 23, 2023
DETROIT/SOUTHFIELD, Mich. – Beginning 7 a.m., Wednesday, March 1, northbound US-24 will be reduced to two lanes from M-5 (Grand River Avenue) to M-102 (8 Mile Road) for sewer work. Drivers will see barrels begin on the northbound side near 6 Mile Road and the southbound side at 9 Mile Road. There has been ongoing utility work above and below ground over the past few months and will continue.
Beginning 6 a.m., Saturday, March 4 through 3 p.m., Monday, March 6, northbound US-24 will have one lane open from M-5 to M-102 for sewer pipe to be laid underground.
From 3 p.m., Monday, March 6 through late June, northbound and southbound US-24 between M-5 and M-102 will be reduced to two lanes in each direction for median work.
MDOT 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 the reconstruction of US-24, improving five bridges, drainage and watermain improvements, sidewalk ramp improvements that are compliant with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), sign replacements, and traffic signal and lighting improvements from the M-5 (Grand River Avenue) intersection to the M-102 (8 Mile Road) area where a diverging diamond interchange (DDI) will be built to improve efficiency and enhance safety. The DDI will be rebuilt in 2024.
