Updated: 4/11/24

Start: April 1, 2024
Current Status: Pending
End: Fall 2024
Road Jurisdiction: RCOC


The Road Commission for Oakland County (RCOC) in partnership with the City of Wixom is looking to reconstruct and widen Grand River Avenue, between Wixom and Napier Roads for a continuous 3-lane roadway with a dedicated left turn lane. This segment of Grand River Avenue carries approximately 20,290 vehicles daily. Also included with this project is improving the traffic signals and the intersection of Napier Road and Grand River Avenue.

Stage 1 - reconstruct the south side of the eastbound lane(s) of Grand River Avenue.

The project includes:

  • Pavement milling (grinding off old pavement) and refracting Grand River Avenue between 12 Mile Road and Wixom Road.
  • Construction of a continuous center left-turn lane between Napier Road and 12 Mile Road and a mix of resurfacing and reconstruction of this section of Grand River Avenue.
  • Improvements to drainage and installation of curbs and gutters.
  • Road shoulder paving where appropriate.
  • Upgrading pedestrian crosswalks to comply with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).
  • Modernization of the traffic signals at the Grand River/Napier and Grand River/12 Mile Rd. intersections.

Road Closure:

Two-way traffic will be maintained on Grand River Avenue throughout the project.

Napier Road will be closed at Grand River Avenue for approximately a month for intersection improvements. The date of the closure will be announced in advance of the closure.  Access to homes and businesses will be maintained throughout the project. 


Once the intersection is closed, the detour is Napier Road to Ten Mile Road to Beck Road to Grand River Avenue and vice versa.
