24 Mile Road water main work to impact Hayes Road intersection

The project to install a 42-inch diameter water main under 24 Mile Road from Dequindre to Romeo Plank roads with a full reconstruction of both lanes of traffic has begun in Shelby and Macomb Townships.

Ric-Man Construction Inc.’s jack and bore operation for the installation of a 42-inch water main under the westbound lane of 24 Mile Road that closed  24 Mile Road between Van Dyke Avenue and Ruann Drive has moved the closure west of Ruann. 24 Mile Road is now OPEN between Van Dyke Ave. and Ruann Drive.

Ric-Man’s goal for the segment between Van Dyke Ave. and Ruann Drive is to have that section of 24 Mile Road totally open by Feb. 11. Van Dyke will remain closed west of Ruann to the Clinton River crossing while crews finish the jack and bore process under the river.

Additionally, 24 Mile Road, between Flower Street and Mound Road, will be open to local traffic only while crews tunnel under the Clinton River.

Starting at 6 p.m. Feb. 27 the intersection of 24 Mile and Hayes road swill be effected by the Detroit Water and Sewerage Department water main installation. Early estimates place a completion date for the intersection work at roughly March 2.

Eastbound 24 mile Road traffic through the intersection will be open to at all times, and westbound 24 Mile Road will only be open west of Hayes Road.

Northbound Hayes Road will be open up to the 24 Mile Road intersection, and motorists will only be allowed to turn right or left onto 24 Mile Road. Southbound Hayes Road will be closed indefinitely at the intersection.

Motorists heading in the southbound direction must seek an alternate route. Message boards alerting motorists of the closure were put in place Feb. 13, and detours will be posted.

Tentatively scheduled for Feb. 24, crews will perform a  jack and bore operation under the Harris Drain between Hayes and Schoenherr roads. Plans are to close the road to westbound traffic for a span of roughly 300 feet with the possibility of a full closure of the road if pavement conditions mandate it.

Once the jack and bore operations are complete, crews will begin open trench work to install segments of the pipe under the west-bound lanes of 24 Mile Road.
