Concrete replacement there is part of the ongoing 12 Mile Road pavement repair project and is expected to last about 19 days. The intersection should reopen mid-October.

The detour route runs from 11 Mile Road to Halsted Road to 12 Mile Road, and back to Drake Road or vice versa.

The $2.6 million project began on August 14. The project includes replacing bad sections of concrete on 12 Mile Road between Haggerty and Farmington roads. The entire project is expected to be complete in mid-November.
