A quarter-mile of Van Dyke will be closed to traffic just north of I-696 from Sept. 13-20 while Consumers Energy crews replace a 20-inch gas main.
The work will require removal of pavement across all lanes of the road in order to gain access to the line.
MDOT spokesman Rob Morosi said only local access to area homes and business would be permitted on both sides of the section of road removed to accommodate the work.
The Michigan Department of Transportation has a list of suggested detours for drivers impacted by the work. Northbound drivers on Van Dyke were advised to use the service drive along 11 Mile Road to travel east to northbound Hoover toward 12 Mile Road. Southbound drivers were advised to travel west on 12 Mile Road to access southbound Mound.
Detours have been posted along Van Dyke on both sides of the I-696 overpass, in Warren and Center Line.
Work was scheduled to be completed by 9 p.m. Sept. 20.
