Local business owners in Metro Detroit express frustration over decreased foot traffic due to ongoing road construction in Lathrup Village.

The Construction Headache: How Local Businesses in Lathrup Village are Suffering Due to Roadwork on Southfield Road

In Lathrup Village, Michigan, a significant roadwork project on Southfield Road is causing major headaches for local businesses. The resurfacing project that started on April 29 between 11 Mile and 12 Mile roads has negatively impacted establishments in the area.

Jay Lee, the owner of Munson Cleaners for 25 years, has noted a substantial decrease in business activity since the project commenced, affecting his revenue by at least 30%. Just across the street from Munson Cleaners is 44 Burrito, where owner Tara Young has also experienced a significant decline in business, particularly during the dinner rush. Young highlighted the challenges of attracting customers and growing the business amidst the construction disruptions.

The ongoing construction project’s impact on local businesses remains a pressing concern as they navigate these challenges. Despite their efforts to adapt to the circumstances, businesses are hopeful that conditions will improve once the project wraps up in early summer. Meanwhile, Oakland County Road Commission officials have yet to provide an update on the timeline for completion.
