I-75 BL (Square Lake Road) project between M-1 and I-75 begins Monday in Bloomfield Township

BLOOMFIELD TOWNSHIP, Mich. - The Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT) is rebuilding the I-75 Business Loop (BL) (Square Lake Road) between M-1 (Woodward Avenue) and I-75 in Bloomfield Township, Oakland County, starting next week, beginning with the westbound lanes. Once the westbound lanes are completed in mid-summer, eastbound I-75 BL (Square Lake Road) will be closed from M-1 (Woodward Avenue) to I-75 through the fall.

Beginning 7 a.m. Monday, April 15, westbound I-75 BL will be closed at Opdyke Road. In June, westbound I-75BL will be closed the entire route between I-75 and M-1 (Woodward Avenue) through mid-summer.

Westbound traffic will be detoured further north on I-75 to westbound M-59, then further west through the Woodward Loop to southbound I-75 BL/US-24 Business Route/M-1 (Woodward Avenue) to westbound US-24 BR/Square Lake Road.

This $15 million project includes rebuilding I-75 BL (Square Lake Road) pavement, drainage improvements, new curb and gutter, signal upgrades, and improving the Opdyke Road/Square Lake Road ramps.

Based on economic modeling, this project is expected to directly and indirectly support 182 jobs.
