Southbound M-53 (Van Dyke Freeway) to close between M-59 (Hall Road) and 18 Mile Road beginning March 4

STERLING HEIGHTS, Mich. ­- Beginning at 7 a.m. Monday, March 4, southbound M-53 (Van Dyke Freeway) will be closed from 18 Mile Road to M-59 (Hall Road) for approximately three months for road and bridge work. The eastbound and westbound M-59 (Hall Road) ramps to southbound M-53 will also be closed.

Southbound M-53 traffic will be detoured via westbound M-59 (Hall Road) to southbound Mound Road, then eastbound 18 Mile Road to southbound M-53.

There will also be local road closures for bridge work on M-53 at the following intersections:

  • Utica Road,
  • 19 Mile Road, and
  • Canal Road.

This work is part of a $16 million project on M-53 (Van Dyke Freeway) between 18 Mile Road and M-59 (Hall Road) to resurface the roadway, perform concrete and guardrail repairs, repairs to 10 bridges, and resurfacing the 23 Mile Road ramps to M-53. Based on economic modeling, this investment is expected to directly and indirectly supports 227 jobs.
