The Maple Road closure at Middlebelt has been in place for some time now. The next phase of construction just started and closed down Middlebelt Road north of 14 Mile too. Now both of these detours will utilize 14 Mile. This increase in traffic on 14 Mile might cause traffic backups. As a result, we might also see an increase in cut-through traffic.
We worked with the city earlier in the year to get a baseline traffic count in our neighborhood. We can ask them to come back and take another count if the cut-through traffic increases a lot.
The city is willing to work with us to help monitor speeders in the neighborhood too. If you see cut through traffic speeding through the subdivision please call the city dispatch at 248-871-2610
