Motorists should expect delays at the Orchard Lake Road and Northwestern Highway intersection beginning Thursday, according to the Road Commission for Oakland County (RCOC).
Consumers Energy plans to close the northbound outside lane of Orchard Lake Road just north of Northwestern Highway, and the outside northbound lane of Northwestern Highway just before Orchard Lake beginning Thursday at 9 a.m. for a gas line repair.
The lane closures will then be in place until 3 p.m. Friday. After that time, the lanes will be opened for the weekend. However, the same lanes will be closed again at 9 a.m. Monday, Feb. 4. They will remain closed until Tuesday, Feb. 5, at 3 p.m. when they are expected to re-open.
