Cooley Lake Road in Highland Township is slated for utility work next week.

Cooley Lake Road between Burns Road and Duck Lake Road is scheduled to close next Thursday and Friday. Cooley Lake Road carries 3,840 vehicles daily. The Road Commission of Oakland County advises that during the closure, a private contractor will be installing a new gas pipeline under the road, which requires an open cut. The road is expected to reopen sometime Friday evening.

Meanwhile, work is continuing on a large project in Lyon Township at Napier and 10 Mile Roads. This involves reconstruction of the intersection to a roundabout, a hill cut on 10 Mile Road, west of Napier and reconstruction of 10 Mile Road from Copperwood to Nepavine Drive. Detours remain in effect. The road is expected to fully re-open in mid-October, although there will be continued work through mid-November. (JM)
