Major Road Projects: 

Mound Road Reconstruction – INNOVATE MOUND

The Innovate Mound project will involve the reconstruction of Mound Road from M-59 to I-696.   The project started on August 16, 2021 with construction completion in the Summer of 2024.  The first phase of construction will occur between M-59 and the Sterling Relief Drain located north of 15 Mile Road.  The first phase of the project will entail the setup of traffic control, temporary pavement, underground utility construction and earthwork to allow for paving of phase I in 2022.  A public open house was held on August 26, 2021.  Please see the links below for project information, construction updates and to subscribe to the Innovate Mound newsletter.

Starting October 12, the left lane of both eastbound and westbound Metro Parkway will be closed at Mound Road for storm sewer and median widening work. Two lanes will remain open in each direction on Metro Parkway. The lane closures will remain in place until mid-December. 

Tree removals within the median have been completed.  Removals are necessary for the completion of the project items including the temporary pavement and underground utility construction.  Hundreds of trees will be planted upon completion of the road work as reforestation of the median and roadway. 

Residents and businesses requiring immediate assistance can contact the construction ombudsman, Jon Bailey, at 1-855-MOUND-4U (1-855-668-6348). The ombudsman is available 24 hours a day. For all other questions and information, please contact the Innovate Mound project team.
