During Phase 1 construction, the single outer lanes will be closed to traffic. Following the completion of Phase 1, the inner three (3) lanes will be closed to traffic and traffic will be maintained in the outer lanes. It will be necessary to restrict left turn movements during Phase 2 of the project. Please plan your routes accordingly. Access to all businesses and residential houses on Ryan Road will remain open to traffic during construction.  It is anticipated the project will be completed in approximately 6 weeks.

Phase 1 construction, the outer westbound lane will be closed to vehicular traffic. It will be necessary to close both drive approaches off 17 Mile Road to the Sterling Shopping Center during this portion of the project.   All traffic within the shopping center will enter and exit off Van Dyke Avenue. This phase is expected to last approximately two (2) weeks (weather permitting).

Phase 2 construction, the inner left turn lane will be closed to vehicular traffic. It will be necessary to restrict left turns in and out of both drive approach to the Sterling Shopping Center. This phase is expected to last approximately two (2) weeks (weather permitting).

18-1/2 Mile Road Concrete Repairs, Van Dyke Ave. to Conrail Railroad:

19 Mile Road Asphalt Joint Repairs, West of Hayes Road:

On March 20, 2018, the City of Sterling Heights began providing asphalt joint repair to the worst deteriorated concrete pavement west of Hayes Road on 19 Mile Road.  The work plan provides for clean-out of the bad joints, milling as necessary, bond coating with tack, application of HMA with compaction using a vibratory roller to achieve a smooth finish that is flush with the existing pavement. The repair provides for more durability, sustainability, and better ride quality than cold patch.   The repairs will be completed at night so two-way traffic can be maintained during the day on this busy roadway.

Mound Road (Update 2/21/18):

Macomb County Road Department crews are currently out patching potholes on Mound Road.

Macomb County announced on Wednesday, February 21, 2018 in a press conference it will proceed with a $10.2 million complete resurfacing of Mound Road this year. This summer, Mound Road will be completely resurfaced from 14 Mile to 18 Mile Roads in both directions for a total cost of $10.2 million. The funding is 80% federal, 10% City and 10% County funding. The resurfacing will be complete by the end of 2018.

Over the past two weeks, City and County officials have been collaborating in a number of emergency meetings to address the immediate condition of Mound.  In the end, resurfacing was determined to be the most cost effective way to address the nearly four miles of Mound Road considered to be the worst pot hole plagued section of the nine-mile stretch from 696 to M-59. 

This improvement is expected to last at least five years until the funding for the complete reconstruction can be secured in the amount of $217 million. Learn more about the complete reconstruction of Mound Road initiative called “Innovate Mound” at www.innovatemound.org.
