S. Campbell Road Resurfacing Improvements CAP1806

What is being done?

The city will be resurfacing S. Campbell Road from 10 Mile RoaCampbell road project limitsd to 11 Mile Road, which includes:


  • Milling off the existing road surface
  • Performing repairs of the concrete road base and drainage structures
  • Replacing curbing
  • Replacing driveway approaches
  • Resurfacing the road with asphalt
  • Installing pedestrian crossing islands at two locations
  • Upgrading traffic signals
  • Re-striping the roadway with a  center turn lane, one lane of travel in each direction and bicycle lanes (road diet)

When will the work be done?

Work is tentatively scheduled to begin in late May and be completed in October 2018.

How will the road diet work?

S. Campbell Road currently exists as a four lane road, with two lanes travelling north and two lanes travelling south.

Between Dallas Avenue and E. Fourth Street, this project will convert S. Campbell Road into a three lane road: one lane of travel for northbound and southbound motorists with a center turn lane. Bicycle lanes will be added to the outer edge of the roadway on both sides.

Before

Campbell 4-lane

After

Campbell 3-lane

Benefits of a road diet include:

  • Less speeding - Four lane roads promote lane changing and speeding as more aggressive drivers utilize the second travel lane to pass slower moving vehicles. The three lane roadway regulates overall vehicle speed to the slowest moving vehicle.
  • No weaving - Vehicles turning left now have a dedicated turn lane, removing them from traffic flow and decreasing the potential of side swipes, rear-end crashes or accidents from vehicles crossing two lanes of traffic.

How will traffic be affected?single lane traffic

During construction, traffic will be shifted to one side of the road, with one travel lane open in each direction.

There will be NO LEFT TURNS allowed along S. Campbell Road at Lincoln Avenue and at 11 Mile Road to help with traffic congestion and flow.no left turn 1

Delays are expected throughout construction. The city advises finding alternate routes to your destination when possible.

Traffic Phasing (schedule is subject to change)

Phase Description Length of Time
1 Close the east half of S. Campbell Road.

One lane northbound and one lane southbound will be used for  traffic on west half of road.

Along S. Campbell Road, left turns will be prohibited at the 11
Mile Road and Lincoln Avenue intersections for northbound
and southbound traffic.

not have access to their driveways and will be notified 24 hours
in advance when this occurs.

Residents will be allowed to park in the closed portion of the
roadway from 8 PM to 7 AM, and all day on Sundays and
holidays.
