Woodward Construction Update – May 4

Construction in Pleasant Ridge and Ferndale
MDOT is preparing to switch from double left lane closures to double right lane closures on Woodward from I-696 to 8 Mile starting Friday, May 12 through the end of June.

This work will also result in the temporary closure of SMART bus stops on southbound Woodward at Millington, Elm Park, and Cambridge in Pleasant Ridge. The bus stop at Oakland Park will remain open and in service.

These closures are related to the ongoing Woodward pavement resurfacing project. In addition to resurfacing Woodward and concrete curb and crossover repairs, the project will also remove a travel lane on each side of Woodward from 8 Mile to Oakridge Street in Ferndale and the rightmost southbound lane from Poplar Park to Oakland Park in Pleasant Ridge will be removed. That space will be dedicated to two-way cycle tracks and improved intersection crossings for pedestrians and bicyclists along the corridor.

Construction on Woodward North of I-696
MDOT is also completing paving work on Woodward north of I-696. The northbound underpass lanes are currently closed while MDOT resurfaces the two left lanes. Work on the two right lanes north of 696 is scheduled to begin on Wednesday, May 10.
