12-Mile Road Resurfacing Project Overview
Project Description: Resurfacing 12 Mile Road from Greenfield Road to Coolidge Hwy. beginning approximately June 1. At that time, the contractor expects to close 12 Mile Road from Greenfield Road to Ellwood Street for approximately one month. After that, 12 Mile Road will remain open to two-way traffic for the duration of the project. 

Construction Includes:

  • Milling road surface and paving with asphalt
  • Reconstruction of 12 Mile Road from Greenfield to Ellwood Avenue (will close to through traffic during the work)
  • Side street approaches to 12 Mile Road rehabilitation and reconstruction
  • Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA)-compliant sidewalk ramps and signal upgrades
  • New curb and gutter

Project Start: June 1, 2020 (utility relocation began in April and is expected to be completed in June; there will be periodic lane closures for the work)
Project Completion: Winter 2020

Project Details: The project will be constructed in two stages.

  • Stage 1: During this stage, the south half of this section of 12 Mile will be resurfaced, and traffic will be shifted to the north side. Also during this stage, starting approximately June 1, 12 Mile Road between Greenfield Road and Ellwood Drive will be closed to traffic for approximately one month for more extensive repairs. During the closure, the detour route will be Greenfield to 11 Mile to Coolidge Hwy. and back to 12 Mile and vice versa.
