Dequindre, West Utica roads detour to begin Sept. 9
The Road Commission for Oakland County is overseeing a project to reconstruct Dequindre Road between Burningbush Road and West Utica Road.

The project includes storm drainage and widening of portions of the road resulting in a five-lane concrete reconstruction the length of the entire project.

The project is managed by the RCOC with coordination from the Macomb County Department of Roads, Rochester Hills, Shelby Township, Sterling Heights and Troy. Construction is expected to be completed by fall of 2016 with some restoration work to be completed in 2017. The total cost of the project is $7.7 million, which is offset with $6.2 million in federal funding.

Early plans call for the road to be constructed in two main stages. In the first stage, crews will construct the east side of Dequindre Road and the south side of South Blvd.

The second stage will see construction on the west side of Dequindre Road and the north side of South Blvd. Dequindre Road will be open to traffic for the entirety of the project as three lanes -- one lane in each direction and a center left turn lane -- will be maintained throughout the project.

Along with the reconstruction and widening, a redesign of the intersection Dequindre and West Utica roads is planned as Meliville Road in Rochester Hills will be aligned with West Utica Road with a new traffic signal installed at that location.

Because it lies on a county border, Dequindre Road is maintained by the MCDR between 8 Mile to 14 Mile roads and 26 Mile and Bordman roads. The RCOC manages Dequindre Road between 14 Mile to 26 Mile roads.
