Lanes Closed at Maple and Orchard Lake Roads for Power Line Repairs
DTE crews shut down several lanes at the heavy intersection because of an underground power line.
Several lanes at the intersection of Orchard Lake and Maple roads in West Bloomfield will be closed today for repairs, according to the Road Commission for Oakland County.
DTE crews shut down the outer lanes at the intersection this morning to repair an underground power line, a news release from the RCOC stated. Specifically, the outside southbound lane of Orchard Lake just north of Maple is now closed, as are the westbound outside lane of Maple immediately east and west of Orchard Lake. The closures are expected to remain through rush hour and up to midnight.
The release did not say if the repairs are related to the power outage that impacted 300 homes in West Bloomfield Wednesday, or the outage that left more than 5,000 without power on Monday.
