Beginning May 22, the City of Southfield will be making major changes to Evergreen Road, which will limit the number of lanes available for use.
As a result, here are some alternate routes for your consideration:
- From M-10 South (Northwestern Hwy): Exit at Lahser and proceed to 9 Mile. Turn left to head east. Enter the church grounds from the 9 Mile rd entrances.
- From M-10 North (Lodge Fwy): Exit at 9 Mile (Northland Drive). Proceed down the service drive to 9 Mile. Turn left to head west. Enter the church grounds from the 9 Mile rd entrances.
- From 8 Mile Rd: Travel north on Evergreen. Turn left at 9 Mile to enter the church grounds from the 9 mile rd entrances.
The City of Southfield will be performing road improvements on a 1 mile section of Evergreen Road between Nine Mile Road and Northbound Northwestern Service Drive. The work will consist of reconstructing the roadway (removing and replacing the entire road pavement structure) between the Nine Mile/Evergreen Road intersection to the M- 10 (Lodge Freeway), gapping the bridge, but reconstructing the bridge approaches up to the Northbound Northwestern Service Drive.
The following is a description of how the work will be constructed in segements:
Stage 1A and 1B
Traffic within the 1 mile stretch of the road will be limited to SB traffic only. NB traffic will be detoured via Lahser Road. The work will begin and require the temporary widening of a portion of the west side of the road and will also include some storm sewer construction. This will be followed by full pavement removal of the NB lanes. When the NB lanes are removed, residents and businesses located on the east side of the road will be able to access their driveways, however access will cross the construction area so care must be taken when leaving the paved roadway surface. The northbound lanes will take 2-3 months to complete.
Stage 2A & 2B
Once completed, traffic will be placed on the newly constructed pavement and the SB roadway will be reconstructed. NB traffic only will be maintained. SB traffic will be detoured via Lahser Road.
The intersections of Nine Mile and Southbound NW with Evergreen Road will experience lane reductions while these intersections are reconstructed.
No work will be permitted during the 4th of July and Labor Day holiday periods.
Bus Service will most likely be interrupting along Evergreen Road due to this construction. Contact SMART for additional information.
