Mound Road Asphalt Resurfacing: July - November 2018

This is a MCDR project. Mound Road Asphalt Resurfacing from North of 14 Mile Road to 18 Mile Road started July 2.  The contractor is Ajax Paving.  They intend to work 7am-7pm, 7 days a week until project completion.  The project is expected to last into November but be completed this year.  

Currently there are lane reductions on the Mile roads at Mound Road to allow for structure adjustments (manhole covers) to be made in the Mound Road intersections.  Once this is complete, in approximately 7-10 days, the final layer of asphalt will be placed on the entire job.  This process will take 1-2 weeks.  Currently the entire job has the first layer of asphalt in place.

The contractor will maintain access to residential and commercial properties throughout the project.  MCDR requests your patience and cooperation through the reconstruction of the road.

Cross-overs will be closed at times, but only every other one is permitted to be closed at one particular time. The project also includes the resurfacing of the 17 Mile Road and 18 Mile Road approaches to Mound Road.  Periodic daily lane closures will be necessary on these mile roads from time to time to complete this work.
