Traffic Alert: 12 Mile Resurfacing Begins in Berkley
BERKLEY (WWJ) – The Road Commission for Oakland County (RCOC) in partnership with the City of Berkley, expects to begin work on Monday, April 18 for the resurfacing of 12 Mile Road from Coolidge Highway to Woodward Avenue.
“This project will provide a smooth new road surface as well as safety enhancements,” RCOC Vice Chairman Greg Jamian said in a release. He added that the project is expected to extend the useful life of the road by approximately 15 years.
The project will include pavement repairs and the application of three inches of new asphalt. Also included will be pedestrian crosswalk upgrades to meet the requirements of the Americans with Disabilities Act.
Throughout the project, at least one lane in each direction will remain open to traffic at all times. Access to all homes, businesses and schools along the road will be maintained at all times.
However, motorists should expect delays, and those not traveling to or from destinations within the construction zone are encouraged to use an alternative route.
The resurfacing project is expected to be completed by July 15.
