Commuters traveling through Northfield Township may need to find an alternate route next week.

East Shore Drive between Seven Mile Road and the Livingston County line will be closed for hot mix asphalt resurfacing beginning next Wednesday, at 7am. The project is expected to be completed within a week, with East Shore Drive reopening by October 11th. Through-traffic will be prohibited, but local access to properties will be maintained, though with possible delays.

The Washtenaw County Road Commission wants to remind drivers, however, that all dates are tentative and scheduled to change due to weather conditions. (MK)
