Major Road Projects:

Saal Road Resurfacing : 19 Mile Road to Clinton River Road - Summer 2020

The City of Sterling Heights will be paving Saal Road from Clinton River Road to 19 Mile Road.  The project has been designed to address this 1.9 mile section of roadway through two operations.  A portion of the pavement will receive a treatment of milling of the existing concrete surface and resurfacing of the roadway with an asphalt overlay. The remainder of the existing pavement will be pulverized and the new asphalt pavement constructed on top of the pulverized material road base.

The project will be completed in two stages.

Stage 1: Starting the week of June 29 (weather permitting), the contractor will begin mobilizing equipment for construction of the west half of Saal Road between Clinton River Road and 19 Mile Road. Work is expected to be completed by late August. To enable construction, only one-way, northbound Saal Road traffic will be maintained between Clinton River Road and 19 Mile Road. One-way traffic will be set up once construction is started.  Detours will be posted for all southbound Saal Road traffic.

Stage 2: Upon completion of Stage 1 construction (approximately late August), the contractor will start construction of the east half of Saal Road between Clinton River Road and 19 Mile Road. Work is expected to be completed by mid-October. To enable construction in this stage, only one-way, southbound Saal Road traffic will be maintained between Clinton River Road and 19 Mile Road. Detours will be posted for all northbound Saal Road traffic
