19 Mile Road Construction : Schoenherr Road to Clinton River Road

The City of Sterling Heights will be reconstructing Nineteen Mile Road from Schoenherr Road to Clinton River Road during the summer and fall of 2020. The project will result in a new three-lane asphalt roadway, public utility improvements, and aesthetic improvements throughout the project.

To provide information to residents and businesses adjacent to the project, the City of Sterling Heights held a community information meeting on Wednesday, March 11, 2020 from 6:30 pm to 8:00 pm at the new City of Sterling Heights Community Center.  

The project will be completed in two stages. The south half of Nineteen Mile Road will be Stage 1 and the north half of Nineteen Mile Road will be Stage 2. Stage 1 construction will commence early to mid-July and be completed in approximately eight weeks. Stage 2 construction will continue upon completion of Stage 1 and be completed by early December. There may be a need to complete turf establishment and other items in the spring of 2021. To enable construction, only westbound Nineteen Mile Road traffic will be maintained while eastbound traffic will be detoured. Access to all residential drives, commercial drives and cross streets will be maintained.  Please see the letter and Map below for additional information.  Additional updates will be posted closer to the beginning of the project.

18 Mile Road Sidewalk : South Side, Mound to Van Dyke

The City of Sterling Heights aggressively pursued completion of the sidewalk gaps on the south side of 18 Mile Road between Van Dyke Ave and Mound Road this November.  Construction barrels have been placed for this project.  However, due to the unfortunate and unseasonal winter conditions of November, the project will need to be completed this upcoming Spring.  The barrels do not and will not reduce any through lanes on 18 Mile Road.  The barrels are intended to remain through the winter to heighten driver awareness and encourage walkers to remain inside the barrels for safety purposes. The project is now scheduled for Spring of 2020 and will include sidewalk lighting as well.   The City can be reached at 586-466-2720
