Utility relocation on the border of Salem and Lyon Townships starts next week and will require a roughly month-long road closure.

The Road Commission for Oakland County will close 8 Mile Road at Currie Road on the border of Salem Township in Washtenaw County and Lyon Township in Oakland County for utility relocation work prior to an upcoming intersection project. A single-lane roundabout will be constructed in 2022 at the intersection.

A detour will be in effect. The utility work is expected to be completed by June 30th. However, all dates are tentative and subject to change due to weather conditions.

A link to the detour map is provided.
