There’s finally a bit of good construction news for residents, businesses and motorists traveling through the Northfield Township area.

The Michigan Department of Transportation has announced that both the 6 Mile Road Bridge and the northbound US-23 exit ramp to 6 Mile Road have re-opened to traffic. However, motorists should still prepare for another ramp closure.
M-DOT reminds anyone traveling in the area that starting Tuesday at 6am, the northbound US-23 entrance ramp from 6 Mile Road will be closed for reconstruction for more than a month. Detours will be posted. That ramp is not expected to reopen until Saturday, November 4th.

Northfield Township and Whitmore Lake have been heavily impacted by the US-23 Flex Route project, with lengthy closures and detours. The larger project is targeted for completion in November. M-DOT photo. (JM)
